Happy Saturday everyone! It's time for the Waltzingmouse Sketch but it's also a special day for our Claire and Waltzingmouse Stamps - Waltzingmouse is 2 years old today!! Whoo hoo - so not only is there a sketch but the DT and the Mishcief Makers are all making special birthday cards to celebrate the day!
So here's this week's sketch (which Mischief Maker, Edna designed by the way!)
And here is the Birthday card I created
I used stamps from several Waltzingmouse sets for my card. Bitty Banners, 'Twas the Night before Christmas, Sweet Hearts, Victorian Alphabet and Dainty Doilies large! I doctored up the sentiment - I hand wrote the 's on Guess Who the 2 and ? are from Victorian Alphabet. I stamped the images on Claire's celtic squares digital paper.
And in honor of Waltzingmouse's 2nd Birthday - I made a celebratory cupcake using Claire's new Cuppie Love Template! Just click on the pics to see them larger.

Here's a top view of the flower - I cut it with Tim Holtz Tattered floral die and embossed two of the layers with Sizzix embosing folder - Cracked, and two of the layers with Provo Craft Swiss Dots embossing folder. The leaves are Sixxix leaf stem.
Now please waltz over to the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created using this week's sketch!
