Hello Blogger's,

Thanks for dropping by today, how was your week end? It's Monday morning here in Sydney and the rain they talked about for Saturday didn't arrive until evening so we had a wonderful sunny day.  Sunday was beautiful too.  It was a busy week end in the Walsh household with only one card made.




I didn't set out to make this card, I was just playing with one of the small stamps from a Waltzingmouse set called Very Vintage Labels No 10.  I really like these scrolls and by stamping them side by side, one facing up and then a row facing down I ended up with this strip that I had to use.  

SU Melon Mambo, Cottage Wall dp, Kiwi Kiss and White textured card were my card choices with Kiwi Kiss for the Swirls and Memento Tuxedo Black for the sentiment (WMS Fancy Phrases).  Six of the smallest gems from Annabelle Stamps Pink Petal Kit complete the card.

What the camera doesn't show is the beautiful sparkle from these tiny pink gems.... Just enough and so pretty!

Till next time...........

That little stamp really created a beautiful border for your card. I really like how you tucked the Nestie label under the border.

How clever of you to use the stamp like that, love that backing paper, and the pink and green go so well together.

Love this card...sometimes when you are playing around the nicest things develop. I can see the sparkle of the gems. Thanks for the comment on my quilt card. Answer to a question you had: the cutout snowflake on my ornament card was from a Basic Grey Collection Pad of Figgy Pudding. There was only one of the snowflake in the Pad.
