Waltzingmouse CASE (COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING) Competition

Directions for the Waltzingmouse CASE Competition are easy.....  Find a card or project from any of the projects posted over the past few days by the WMS Design Team, CASE that project using Waltzingmouse Stamp images, and link it to the Waltzingmouse blog post. At the end of the competition, one project will be randomly selected to be highlighted with a Parade of its own on several of the Design Team blogs.

Selecting which designer you want to CASE is the hard part - there are so many great ones to choose from!!!  When I saw Tosha Leyendekker's design - I knew that was the one for me.  I love the banner and the vintage look of the design.  You can see Tosha's design at the bottom of this post.
This is my version of Tosha's design.   I gave her design a twist by adding LOTS OF COLOR to make this more festive for a PARTY invite.  I keep kicking myself for not buying the doily stamp set so I made due with a large pennant in the background.   I wanted to incorporate the emboss on vellum that Claire and many others were playing with so I embossed the large pennant in the background.

I stamped the label and "join us" sentiment in black so that it would be strong enough to stand out, and added rhinestones between each of the smaller pennants.   I hope you like the card!!  I had lots of fun making it and seeing all the different colors can't help but put me in a festive mood and  make me happy!
