Happy Saturday, friends! Today is challenge day at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and we have another wonderful sketch for your inspiration! I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Remember, if you don't have any Waltzingmouse Stamps, there are a lot of freebies in the shop that you are more than welcome to use to play along!
I saw that small square in the center and thought to make for little squares to make up a larger one. I stamped every pattern from Gingham and Co. and then punched a square of each with a postage stamp punch. I used the same red ink on each but love how the pattern variations really impact how the color looks! I cut a sheet of patterned paper and then stamped the hearts from Sewing Box Hugs to give it a bit more of a pattern and finished with a sentiment from Say it Loud. I finished the card with some Scrabble tile chipboard stickers and really like how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and I don't say enough how much I appreciate each and every one of my readers and all of you who take time to comment! They really make my day! :)
