Waltzingmouse Stamps- Sketch Challenge #30

Good morning everyone!! I am soooo glad it's the weekend. We've had a very eventful week and I think today we will just take it easy and chill for a time. Popcorn and a movie later I think ;) 

Today I would like to share with you my DT card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges. It's a wonderful sketch and I really enjoyed the piecing it all together. I'm really loving machine stitching all my papers lately and this one certainly proved a challenge, lol. 

When I started this card I had black & white in my head, but somewhere along the way I got the idea that I wanted to add the red and white hearts and I'm kinda glad I did. I really love the way red pops against the black and white. 

The sentiment was in the paper pack, on a full sheet of playing card sized squares. I thought it was a wonderful sentiment and not one I've seen on a stamp anywhere so I trimmed it down to slot into the sketch design.

Papers: My Mind's Eye "Meadowlark"
Cardstock: Bazzil
Crystal Swirls - Prima

Dutch Dare - all stitched up
Scrapbook Sisters - heart's desire
Sassy Studio Designs - use something that is over a year old (stamp set)
Freshly Brewed - black, white, one other colour
Ooh La La Creations (2 weeks) - Bling it on

Why not take a peek over on the challenge blog to see what wonderfully inspirational projects both the Mischief Makers and the Waltzing Mouse Design Team have created. 
Have a great weekend

Great colors Sandie - love the red heart against the black and white - super sewing too - mine doesn't always come out even! A movie and popcorn sounds like a great plan!

I agree, adding he heart really gave your already beautiful card that extra little WOW!!! The red pops right off the card and ties it all together.
