WMS August Release Waltz

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps August Release waltz! If you didn't come from Jennifer's site then be sure to go to Claire's blog to start from the beginning. There will be a prize of a stamp set of choice from a random drawing from comments left all the DT member blogs. You have until August 26th 11:59 PM, 5:5 9AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments. The winner will be posted on Claire’s blog on July 6th.

Let's start with a holiday card.
Because it's never too early for Christmas
At least in my house...

I always thought it'd be fun to hang the lantern from Festive Foliage.
The lantern is embossed and I tied a little ribbon on top.



For this next one, I opted to use the flower from Vintage Seed Packet set.
I stamped my favorite pattern from Pic-nic Patterns in white.
Very subtle but it gets the point across.
The sentiment comes from Say It Loud.

There's a little bit of perfect pearls but it's hard to tell in the photo.
Did you think I could leave out some of that stuff? ;-)


Next up is the very talented Mona!

You must have been reading my mind for the 1st card as this is how I envisaged the lantern - hanging from the festive foliage (probably because I have that set). The second card makes me swoon too love the soft palette you used.
