February's Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

Each month on the 17th, Walzting Mouse Stamps host a Blog Waltz with a given theme. You do need to use their stamps to participate and as I have just got myself 3 sets I thought I'd join in this month. The theme for this month is designing with buttons.
And here's my take on this challenge, using stamps from all 3 of my new sets! I did also use old Mojo #40 for my sketch - you know how I love to combine my challenges!


Recipe:

Stamps: Faux Fun Circles, Frame-It, Victorian Frippery all from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Whisper White all from SU, After Five Collection from Kaisercraft

Inks: Sahara Sand, Basic Black both from SU

Accessories: Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon (retired) from SU, Circle Nestabilities, Primas, Oyster Grey Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Reel, Big spotty button and tiny flower buttons from stash, Small black buttons from Papermania

I had lots of fun doing this blog waltz and can't wait to join in again next month!
