Muse 158 - Thanks to Waltzingmouse



Here's my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where Tracey has given us a lovely spring inspiration:



I also made this as a tribute and thank you to Claire at Waltzingmouse Stamps. I'm sure by now you've heard that Waltzingmouse is closing at the end of March. Over the years I've collected a number of Waltzingmouse Stamp sets and many of the images and sentiments have become old favourites. This set was long on my wish list but for some reason never made it into my cart. When I heard that my time was limited, I purchased it right away and it seemed fitting to use it for today's card.

I focused on Tracey's:
-colour scheme (I popped the colours up a little)
-layout (I inverted it)
-black sentiment
-floral theme

I used:
-Waltzingmouse Simple Sprig
-Waltzingmouse Free Spirit Sentiments

Beautiful. Those leaves are gorgeous. The curve of the veining in each leaf is unique and different. The pretty berries in that bright pink is perfect. Love how you've framed your focal point in black. Wonderful card, and have a very Blessed Easter. Bev
