with sympathy

This is my card for the Waltzing Mouse challenge on the Stamping Around blog. I was inspired by the quilt tablecloth in this photo:

I cut up a bunch of paper squares (1/2"-ish) from three different paper collections and glued them together. I stamped & then embossed with clear embossing powder, both the tree and the sentiment. The lovely willow tree is from Blessed by You set and the sentiment from Celtic Heritage set, both by Waltzing Mouse Stamps.

  • Stamps: Blessed by You and Celtic Heritage (Waltzing Mouse Stamps)
  • Paper: Maddi Multipack, Brooke Multipack (both by Making Memories), Fun in the Sun stack (DCWV)
  • Ink: VersaMark, Pink Petunia (VersaMagic), Vintage Sepia (VersaFine). Can you tell I like Tsukineko inks?
  • Embellishments: lace trim, clear embossing powder
