Birthday Wishes - WMSC57

Happy Saturday!

Here is today's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge:
Another fun sketch from Julia.

And here is the card I created for this sketch:

The hibiscus flowers are from Free Spirit - Boy. I stamped them on a gradient of cardstock colors, cut them out and then adhered them to my card front. Some are adhered with dimensional tape and others are flat. I also added some coordinating rhinestones to the center of each flower. Is it bad that I had rhinestones to match all those colors? :)

We hope you'll play along with us this week - head to the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge Blog to link up your creation. In addition to the Top Mice awards, a free stamp set is awarded each week to a random player!

Have a great day!

  1. I love these colorful flowers Anya! I never think to ink these up and they look just beautiful!! The bling adds just the right touch!

  2. Anya, what a great idea to use the hibiscus in that way. Love the rhinestones sprinkled in with them, too. Terrific card!

  3. I just adore this card - the hibiscus flowers are among my favourite stamps and I love the way you've used them here!

    As for having matching rhinestones, doesn't everyone ? :))

  4. Beautiful shades of color. Love the matching rhinestones!

  6. Love this! A perfect example of how well-placed gemstones can add to a project, too. I have a feeling I'm going to be CASEing this one in the near future. :)
