Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #38

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my post for the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Release Blog Hop. Thanks!

Happy Saturday! 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 love this simple sketch and the shape!


The background is made from cutting two pieces of patterned paper from the Mariposa pad by DCWV using a Standard Circles Large die. I then stamped the lovely tree images from the Teeny Trees set on the pink sky. After trimming a scalloped edge for the green piece, I machine stitched around the circle and just below the scalloped edge. The piece is then glued to a piece of cardstock for stability. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and is attached to the circle with foam tape. A few pearls finished the card.

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! =)
