July Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz- Birthday Party!

Today I made a card for my very first Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz.  I just recently ordered some stamps from Waltzingmouse and although they haven't reached me yet, I still wanted to play along with their waltz challenge.  The theme this month is Birthday Party. I need a card for an outdoor birthday party for my sister-in-law whose party is going to be held in the most beautiful backyard I have ever seen.  Tons of flowers and greenery, so unlike my own backyard.   I downloaded a free template from the Waltzingmouse store, Watering Can Card.   Make sure you click on the link to check it out.  It's free!
                                     Here is my card:
Isn't this a pretty little card for a birthday?  I love this watering can, and it was so easy to cut out!  I thought I would mess up cutting out the handles, but they are large enough that even my fat fingers could do it.
I printed my watering can template on digital paper from WaltzingMouse called Victoriana Papers. This paper pack is so reasonably priced and so far I have used two of them for projects.  I love that I can print them on whatever weight cardstock I want.  This time I used heavy cardstock so my card would be very sturdy, but they can be printed on layering weight cardstock and would be just as pretty and reduce the weight on your card too. 
I cut a mat using my Spellbinders Labels Four and stamped it with an image from WaltzingMouse Very Vintage Labels No. 4.  Inside that label, I used a few images from PTI's Garden Variety set.  Doesn't it go nicely with that watering can?  To pretty up the can, I added some hot pink pom-poms.  I had to have something to fill up my watering can, so I cut some Larger than Life flowers from PTI and had them peek out of the can.  I added a little stickles and a cute little yellow tag tied with bakers twine just to add a bit more color to this card.  So, what do you think?  Make sure you check out all of Waltzingmouse digital products.  You can create a very cute card in no time at all!

Nice card from the digi world. That paper is pretty and the floral arrangement is lovely. What a great entry into your first WMS waltz.

How very lovely. Your watering can card is a great way to send a paper bouquet to a friend. Fantastic job.

Your watering can is VERY cute! I'm a gardener and I wish I had a watering can like that! Love that you used the Victoriana Papers.

Oh my. Gorgeous! I love that you used the larger than life flowers to stick out of the can! So appropriate! I was eyeing some pom poms the other day at the store....now I may need to back and get them. This shows me they would look so cute as trim on the big cupcake die! The tiny tag is the perfect little touch. Great card!

what a wonderful and cheery watering can! Well done!
