*** Scroll down for my Just Us Girls Guest Designer card ***

We're celebrating Waltzingmouse Stamps turning 2!!! Yay!! It's amazing how fast the company is growing!! Congrats Claire, you're such an inspiration! So we've all made birthday cards to celebrate! This week's sketch at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge is designed by fellow Mischief Maker Edna. Here's the sketch! (WMSC48) Reminds me of Connect 4! : )

I have to admit this one had me struggling a bit, I did stick quite literally to the sketch in the end. I'm fairly happy with the results. It took long enough to make!!

The background I stamped using Gingham & Co by Waltzingmouse Stamps, I love this set, this is one of those must haves! All the little flowers are stamped using the polka dot stamp from the same set.

The sentiment on the wee tag is from Half Pint Heroes by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The tag I die cut using the Sizzix Scallop tag dies.

All the flowers have closed coil quilled centers in various colors. The flowers I cut out using the smallest flower from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals die.

You'll have to check out the amazing creations from the rest of the Mischief Makers and some of the WMS design team at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I'm teaching a card-making workshop today at The Crafty Alley Shop... should be fun!! : ) Wish me luck!!
