Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz & Sketch Challenge

The 17th of every month, Waltzing Mouse Stamps has a Blog Waltz for customers to participate in. So I thought I'd play along this month. The theme is Valentine/Love.

The inspiration for this card came from the weekly Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge. I thought I may as well combine both in this one card.

The papers are from a new paper pack from Close to my Heart called Sweetheart. The flower was made with the same paper.

I used two Waltzing Mousr Stamp Sets fro my card. Holiday Labels #14 and Fancy Phrases.

I did some paper piercing in the corners and sdded some flat pearls.

The Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
