Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #7

Hi everyone! My husband and I are going to Florida for vacation next week and so I'm trying to join as many challenges as I can...not doing so very well so far...but hey! I didn't want to leave all of you hanging so I'll try to post as many cards this week before I go disappear next week! :) I was browsing through AC Moore yesterday and couldn't believe they had some Cosmo Cricket patterned paper in their stock. I had to get my hands on some of them! I've been seeing so many of my favorite designers use them and I had to try to get some too!. 

Here's the sketch for the challenge.

I used my butterfly dreams and the swirls are actually from the bee stamp from Bitty Baby Blessings. If you can believe it, I actually separated the swirls from the bee wings. I found that I used the swirls in several projects and didn't need the bee wings. It was so hard to ink the swirl and not the wings. And so I did something I learned from Kristina Werner...I cut the stamp into two pieces!!!! (SHOCK!!!) I know! But I used straight angles and so if I wanted to use them together it would really be easy to just put them together again on an acrylic block. I love this patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket! Both are actually from the same sheet, they were just back to back. I couldn't decide which one I wanted more so I used both! :) I hope you all like it! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
