Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #31

Happy weekend! Hope you are having a fabulous one. =) Thank for joining me for a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:
Here is my card:

I once again used the lush paper from the Mariposa collection by DCWV. Those pretty patterns are irresistible!

The beautiful ornate circle from the Victorian Fripperie set is stamped with frayed burlap and the sentiment from the Fancy Phrases set is stamped with  broken china. Both sets are so versatile. I love the pretty fonts in these sets!

I made the opening at the curve for a change. =) The seam binding is dyed with  tattered rose.

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 wonderful weekend, my friends! =)
