Waltzingmouse February Release - Day 3

Welcome to day 3 of the Waltzingmouse February Release!  Today the Design Team is creating with the new Halftone Backgrounds  set and the Easter Die.  All of the new stamps and dies are available now at the WMS shop.

For my first creation I used the Halftone Backgrounds Stamp Set -  this set will coordinate well with yesterdays Kaboom set - both having the cluster of dots design.  I used a monochromatic color scheme, stamping 4 of the stamps in this set randomly over the panel.   The sentiment is from Kaboom -  the dotted frame that I hand cut out is from an older set Fancy Phrases.
On the inside I stamped the arrow stamp from Halftone Backgrounds and a sentiment from another older set - Putting on the Ritz.
I'm linking this card to the Seize the Birthday Challenge -  Masculine.
Along with the lovely new Easter die I used several older Waltzingmouse products on my Easter card.  I used one of the Stitched Tag dies, the egg and chick are stamps from A Good Egg, the blessing sentiment from Say it Loud, and the Art Deco Background stamp
You can see the Art Deco background on the yellow panel a little better in this close up photo.  I stamped it using Mustard Seed Distress ink on Lemon Tart card stock.  I also sponged the edges of the panel with the Mustard Seed.
Please check out the rest of the Design Team's posts for more inspiration using the Halftone set and Easter die!

Love both of your cards. The Easter card is very pretty and your BD card is a great way to use the graphic designs. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.
