Waltzingmouse Blog Hop...Happy Birthday!


I made this card for the CAS67 Shabby Chic and Clean and Simple challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. I think that it is almost an oxymoron to put these two together but I made an attempt and this is the result.

I didn't use any image stamps at all, just a word stamp...and it is from the Waltzingmouse Earth Angel set.
The paper is assorted designer paper from my stash.
