Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #30

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:
Here is my card:


I have to admit that I had a lot of trouble with this sketch. Then the gorgeous Mariposa paper pad by DCVW that a sweet friend share with me saved me. I followed the sketch faithfully this time and really think the paper speaks for itself.


I cut pieces of the pretty patterns from the paper pad and pieced them to match the sketch then added machine stitching to each of the little panels for more interest. The sentiment is from the versatile Fancy Phrases set.

You can use any stamps you want for the challenge, but we would love it if you can use Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please go to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other Mischief Makers came up with and check out all the details for the challenge.

Hope you can join us this week!

Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! =)
