Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #33

Happy Saturday! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. First is the sketch:
Here is my take on the sketch:


The pretty patterned paper is from the Mariposa stack by DCWV that a sweet friend shared with me. Delicious paper, I tell ya.


I used the border stamp from the Victorian Fripperie set and stamped on the patterned paper using bundled sage and tattered rose distress inks. The sentiment is from the Fancy Phrases set. I made the crochet butterfly to finish the card.


Here is a closer look of the butterfly and the tone on tone stamping. I actually made a little mistake on the pattern, since it's symmetric I just made the same mistake on the other side to match. I think it still looks like a butterfly, no? =)

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! =)
