June Stamp of Approval Parade- Waltzingmouse Style!

Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamp of Approval Parade (SOAP)!!!  

Claire has decided to release new stamps every other month -  so for June (a non release month)  the Design Team is having a parade  -  there will be 4 fun days in our parade - for the first 3 days we will be highlighting stamps from the WMS May Release - Join Us, Dainty Doilies 2 Small, Dainty Doilies Large, Gingham & Co., and Say it Loud)

And on the 4th day of our parade - we will be highlighting a set from a past release.  For June this set is Free Spirit Boy - just in time for all of our spring cards!

Today - I have chosen to highlight Gingham & Coone of my favorite background sets to date!

I love the beautiful colours in this card! As you can see I stamped the background and then cut out the butterfly with the Stamping Up! Butterfly Sizzix die. 

I used part of the stamped cardstock for the top of my card and then patterned paper for the rest!

The sentiment is from Half Pint Heroes. I hope you like it - now on to the next person in our parade!!
