Waltzingmouse Blog Party

It's the 17th...
and you know what the 17th of each month brings...
Waltzingmouse Blog Party!!
Don't worry if you're not quite "dressed" yet...
this party goes for 24 hours so plenty of time to get your party attire on!!
And what better theme for a party than BIRTHDAY?
You can check all the details on Claire's blog here...
but so many directions you can go with this one...
the sky's the limit!

I'm not going to keep you long...
I know there's so much inspiration to be had with this one you need to be on your way so you can soak it all in...
so here's what I did...

I did this once before and just love the "subway art" feel to it...
so I did it again.
I used Waltzingmouse Back in the Saddle for all the sentiments...
and then stamped the Harlequin pattern from Heirloom Patterns and created a background...
matted everything...
some seam binding and a couple of fabby sprays that my sweet friend Suzanne sent to me the other day...
just a touch of "bling" on the boots...
and I was done!
Easy peasy!

And now I'm off to see all the eye candy I know I will find at the party...
but I'll be back tomorrow to introduce another fabulously inspiring sketch challenge on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!!

The Details:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Back in the Saddle, Heirloom Patterns
Cardstock: PTI Vintage Cream, True Black, Sweet Blush
Ink: Memento
Misc: seam binding, button, Melissa Francis floral sprays, bling


  1. Such a fun and clever birthday card. Love your subway art and the bling on the boots especially.

  2. Renee, i love this graphic card, so modern and fresh, but with that vintage collection of fonts, such a unique design. Another decider for me that I NEED THIS SET! LOL!

  3. Yee Haw! Hey you're first to the party! Love the clean look of your western card and the splash of pink! Those gems on the boots are fab!

  4. I love the way you used that background Renee! Beautiful subway art look.

  5. This is so cute, Renee! I just love the blingy boots! Great job!!

  6. HEY - we both love harlequin patterns! Such a great card...the pink is a perfect touch on this card, to soften the rough-and-ready images. Amazing job.

  11. Such a clever idea Renee - love it. hink I might have to try creating a text block like that some time. Love the black & white with just a hint of pink too.

  12. This is so cool Renee! Just love the whole thing - especially the pink and black and white color scheme! Bold, graphic and AWESOME!!! I really need to get that set because every time I see a card made with it I think "Why don't I have this???"!!! It is time!

  13. Adore the black & white with splash of pink! And using the subway art makes such a fun design! Then the sprays & bling finish it off with the perfect feminine touch--love it!

  14. Renee, this is just too darn cute! I am not a country person by any means but I have to say this set has been on my wish list for some time. You are so creative and that touch of pink with the black, so classy.

  15. what a striking card - love how you've combined lots of the sentiments from the wild west set.

  16. Hootenanny or hoedown? This C&W party is neither ... and it still ROCKS! Wow! Makes you want to get in line and boot scoot despite the non-trad colours and embellies. Love it!!!!

  17. Love your collage of country stampings Renee! the black white and pink looks super! and that fun little poppy floral is so pretty! oh - and I just saw the bling on the boots!! too cute!
