WMS June SOAP-Day 1

     Welcome to the first day of Waltzingmouse Stamps (WMS) June Stamp of Approval Parade (SOAP)! The WMS Design Team is showcasing the stamps from the May release over the next three days (June 1-3). On June 4th, we rewind it back a bit to highlight an older stamp set and details will be provided on the June SOAP CASE competition.     
     I was in Wal-Mart when I saw the traditional picnic print tablecloths on display. Gingham & Co. was just the ticket to create the background for summer BBQ invites (I had July 4th in mind for us in the U.S.). I used the small flower from Faux Fun Circles to complete the tablecloth design. I thought using red would be perfect, since it is the “standard” tablecloth color, but I like the blue background best.
