Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge No 16

Hi, this is my take on the current Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge 16 - Sketch

I started with a design idea using the "A Good Egg" Stamp Set, masking off the eggs to place the Pic Nic background stamp, with a die cut for the sentiment, and using the bird house from Country Labels No 4.

Then I was inspired to make a very simple designed card for the boys, nautical theme Ocean Bound stamps set, and Splat That in pale blue, stamped under the ships and through the sentiment. After looking at the photograph, I am thinking this could have been matted onto a blue and then white border, to just lift it. If I get some spare time I will try that idea out, otherwise it is plain like the sketch design.

And a final design for the girls, turning the sketch through 90 degrees, using the Country Charms stamp set.
I stamped the fabric swatches and stamped and cut the button out adding some bakers twine tie, to top the final square, in shades of red and grey, a simple and quick to stamp card.

Thank you for visiting, hope that you enjoyed my designs.
If you are quick there is still time to enter your card designs at  the Waltzingmouse Fanatics blog
