Waltzingmouse Challenge #60

I have used the photo below from Martha Stewart Living (May 2011) as the inspiration for my card this week.  Navy always appeals to me and thought the design lent itself to Waltzingmouse stamps. 

This card is so overly engineered, it took far too long to make, with several prototypes now residing in the bin.  I don't use SU Soft Sky all that often but in this case I think it calms down all the navy a bit.

I am particularly pleased with the cameo, such a beautiful image and the sentiment is one of my favourites.

Today is Show Holiday (traditional Agricultural show) in Brisbane, so nice to have a mid-week break and catch up on a bit of family time.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white;  SU Soft Sky;  Bazzill Basics Navy
Stamps - WMS Oval Classic Frames, You're Lovely. Cameo to Go, Cameo Maker
Ink - SU Night of Navy, Soft Sky;  PTI Fresh Snow
Markers - SU Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
Ribbon - SU white organza
Pearls and Gems - Kaisercraft
Fiskars oval stencil


  1. Cassandra, this is soooo elegant! I love the rich blue color against the white. And the cameo is lovely! Seriously gorgeous take on this weeks sketch at Waltzingmouse!

  2. You were so smart to use the oval frames with such a dark beautiful blue. I wouldn't have thought to use a dark color, but it is so striking! I had to read the details to see if it was patterned paper that you bought. Very pretty with the single cameo.

  3. Amazing! This is beautiful. I love the colours. So, so elegant!

  4. WOW Cassandra this card is just BEAUTIFUL!! Love the colours you have chosen too :)

  5. How on earth did you get the stamping in those ovals so even, not splotchy? I'm impressed! This is a lovely card, and I particularly like the way you have showcased the cameo by trimming the lacy edge. Nice!

  6. Gorgeous!
