Waltzingmouse Stamps February Blog Party






If you knew me, you'd know that I'm always late.  And today is no exception!  It's way too late to be up tonight, but I didn't want to miss this month's Blog Party at Waltzingmouse Stamps!  {The party started this afternoon!}  February's theme is "Spring"!  



I live right outside of Washington, DC, so for me, spring means cherry blossoms!  For my card today, I paired up the beautiful WMS cherry blossom stamps (of Asian Gardens) with my new Memory Box window and flower box dies.  A match made in heaven, wouldn't you say?  If you're wondering where the flower box is, it's disguised as chair rail.  I used two die cuts to create the chair rail across the middle.  If you look closely, I also scored the white cardstock on the bottom half of the card to mimic wainscoting.  
If you haven't already tried Memory Box dies, I highly recommend them.  Google "Memory Box Madison Window" and you'll be inspired by all the cool projects using this window die (I know I was:).  Hope everyone has a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
