Waltzingmouse August Release - Sneak Peek Day 3

Here we are at Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse August Release Sneak Peeks!  TOMORROW is the release and we'll be having the traditional DT blog hop and you could win some stamps!

On this final day we are showing you 3 must have sets -  Pinstripe Background, Zig Zag Background and Big Day Today (a lovely set of 9 sentiments and a frame)

My first card shows you the lovely Pinstripe Background along with one of the sentiments from Big Day Today. I sponged the edges of the pinstripe panel.  The scallop piece is a cut down die cut edge.
 I'm entering this card in the Retro Sketch Challenge

Here you can see a close up of the Pinstripe as well as a better look at the leaf stem from yesterdays peek, 2- Step Sprig.  I stamped the leaves green, then blue veins and finally a raspberry center strip (so I did 3 steps!)  It gives the leaves such depth doesn't it?!
I used the cool Zig Zag Background for my second card along with the stem and blooms from yesterdays' Simple Sprig set.  I sponged the edges of the background panel and spritzed the circle with Dylusions Ink Spray.  The simple Happy Birthday is from Big Day Today
Once again - we're off to see what the rest of the Design Team has to show us today!  The release DT blog hop will begin tomorrow at 2 pm EST -  hope you can drop by!
