We don't need your money, money, money....We just wanna make the world dance...

Happy Thursday, y'all! I'm back with another fun Clean and Simple design...this time with some Waltzingmouse Stamps goodness. I save these sketches *every week* and I finally made some time to play! Here's the sketch that the Mischief Makers brought us this week:

I have had my Faux Fun Circles set on my desk for a few weeks, and I pulled this stamp out for a quick little birthday card.

The striped circle image was inked up in VersaMark and then in Melon Mambo ink. That way I could emboss it with my clear embossing powder. Yes, I know I've been obsessively embossing everything lately. I can't help it. Here's a closer look:

This started out as a Christmas card, but I loved this sentiment from Half Pint Heroes so much, and it worked so well with my design that I just went for it. I cut a felt flower in half for the top of my little "ornament," and then added some crochet thread and a button to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today...have a great day!

Wow you emboss so well with no extra messy bits around your image! Gorgeous fresh and funky card x

Oh I love how you used just a part of the PTI flower die to make the attachment for the ornament. At least it looks like it's the die I have too. =) Great tip I'll have to try. You make beautiful cards.
