Happy Birthday Waltzingmouse!


Happy (first) Birthday Claire and Waltzingmouse Stamps!

Here's my hop in the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz with a Birthday theme. I can't wait to see what other people have come up with for their Birthday cards. Go to the WMS blog to get the details for the blog waltz.

I really am in love with this set called Asian Gardens by Waltzingmouse Stamps. It's my first set of it's kind with an asian theme (other than my Kanji set from Stampin Up) and it makes me smile.

and the flip side of the card:

It's subtle, but the birthday wish is in the images. The bird is inside the cage and the flip side image is the bird outside of the cage. A wish for breaking free and enjoying the moments that come.

This card is also for these other fine challenges: TLC272, TLC273, Stamp Something Challenge Blog
