Waltzing Mouse May Blog Waltz

This is my very first Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz. I hope I'm doing it right :-). I was finally able to ink up some WMS stamps that I got last month from winning their sketch challenge. I love Claire's designs. She's one of the most talented paper crafters I know.
This month's theme is Masculine. I had to go clean and simple for this one. No lace or ribbons like my usual cards. I used the Offbeat Backgrounds set to create the plaid background. The sentiment is from Lovely Labels 3 by Gina K Designs.
Fathers Day
More info about the waltz here. The sketch follows the WMS Challenge this week. I flipped it upside down and they ask that you stamp a border, which I did with the sentiment. The buttons and twine make it perfect for the CAS-ual Friday challenge this week.

Have a great day!
