I am absolutely chuffed to bits that my card for WMSC7 was chosen for a Top Mouse award, that put a huge smile on my face! This is the card I've made for the WMSC8 challenge. Here's the sketch:
I received my new Waltzingmouse Asian Gardens stamp sets on Friday so I knew exactly which stamps I wanted to use. I opted to make a bright, cheery hello card to catch up with a friend I haven't heard from in a while.
For the circle elements, I stamped a variety of the Sakura flowers and punched them out with different sized circle punches. For the hello circle, I stamped the rain image from Asian Garden Additions as a background and then stamped the sentiment and tiny flower before matting on a larger Melon Mambo circle. I've popped three of the circles up on foam dots. For the top of the card, I stamped the background border stamp and I added a strip of dotty ribbon. To finish off, I've added some bright pink bling.
