Waltzingmouse Dec Release - Preview Day 3

If you're looking for my Mixed Media Card Challenge post - scroll down or click here.

Welcome to day 3 of the Previews for the December Waltzingmouse Release -  both of the new sets Old Country Roses and Vintage Postcards will be available to purchase tomorrow (Dec 2) at 2 pm EST!  Today the Design Team is giving you a little more inspiration for BOTH new sets.
First I have another card using Old Country Roses - this time I did it up in blues! Both the leaves and the blooms are smaller versions of the stamps I used here on Day 1.  I used an older WMS stamp - Pinstripe Backgrounder - for the background.
I also used a Stitched Tag Die and Pretty Panels #2 die.  To stamp the leaves behind the tag - I first laid the tag on the card where I wanted it and drew some pencil lines along the edges - then I removed the tag - stamped the leaves so they would be partially behind the tag, erased the pencil markings - and then adhered the tag over the stamped leaves.
I used stamps from Vintage Postcards for my second card along with a circle stamp from an older WMS set Ocean Bound. I stamped the postage stamp, cut it out and layered it inside the rope circle stamp.  I stamped the cancellation over the stamp with a light colored ink so you could see it to the side but it didn't obliterate the postage stamp image!  Since the Postage Stamp has a heart on it - I think I'll use this card for a Valentine in February!
I'm linking this card to the CAS(e) this Sketch Challenge.
Tomorrow I'll be back at 2 pm EST - for the Design Team December Release post.  I hope you can stop by then!
Here are links to the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration!
