My Best Friend

I am back today with another (unofficial - ooh!) preview for the Waltzingmouse Stamps March release. Belinda and Jennifer are up today, so please be sure to visit their blogs.

I was really inspired by this card that Bonnie created for her sneak peek on Friday. I absolutely loved the way she used different patterned papers for her flower layers. Here is the card that I made based on that idea.

My rose and leaves were stamped with patterns from Off Beat Backgrounds. The second set of inside petals was cut from another flower and popped up, easily adding some dimension.

The background patterned paper is one of the new digital papers that WMS is offering! They are beautiful! This one is the Victorian paper in Rose. Look familiar? You can read more about them here on Claire's blog.

The sentiment is also from the Roses In Bloom set - I told you, it is loaded!

Please be sure to stop by and visit Belinda, Jennifer, and our fearless leader Claire for more peeks today!

Tomorrow is release day and we'll be celebrating with a blog hop - the fun starts on Claire's blog.

Thank you so much for your visit - I appreciate you taking the time to stop by today!
