Watzing Mouse Sketch challenge card

Hello everyone,

I wanted a change from making Christmas cards so decided to play along with the current Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge:-

I decided to turn the sketch on its side and go a bit dotty for this one:-

I  used PTI Melon Berry for the card and the Polka Dot Parade paper which I inked around the edge and stitched to the card base. I made a tab from Ripe Avocado card that had been passed though the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, and used Nestabilites to cut circles from Raspberry Fizz  and Ripe Avocado. I then cut a Nestabilities Labels 14 and stamped it with a WM Holiday Label stamp and a sentiment from Frame It. I raised this panel on pop dots and looped some Raspberry Fizz ribbon behind it, adding a couple of green dots to highlight the sentiment.  I stamped a butterfly from PTI Butterfly Dreams and stitched it to a circle of cardstock, added the 'flight path' from WM Spring Baskets, and added a Melon Berry button that had been tied in a bow with crochet thread, to resemble wings. A little dotty bow finished it off.

Have a great day and thanks for looking.
