Waltzingmouse Fall Blog Hop


Every month I want to participate and every month I am swamped. But not this time! This time I have a lovely card that meets the criteria. You can see all the details here. Its an Autumn/ Harvest theme this month. So I have some lovely fall trees for you. I started with a base of Rustic Cream Cardstock (PTI). I added a strip of some patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket. Its from their Nutmeg collection. Super cute paper, I recommend it! LOL I used the paper to select my color palette. I am using PTI inks in Sweet blush, Spring Moss, Terracotta Tile and Aqua Mist. I am using my favorite Waltzingmouse set, Teeny Trees. I stamped the trunks in dark chocolate. Then I used the leaf stamp to add multicolored leaves. I added the sentiment and bird with aqua mist, I tried to put them at a slight angle. I was being artsy- but now it just looks a little crooked- sigh. Ah well. I love the rest of it. Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have fun on the waltz.
