Waltzingmouse Sketch and Paper Crafts August Gallery Challenges

I love this week's sketch at Waltzingmouse! I decided to incorporate it with this month's gallery challenge at Paper Crafts which is looking for girlfriend-themed projects.

I didn't realize that this was going to be a distressed card when I started it... That white card base is definitely incongruous!

I had fun sewing, stamping music over and inking up these gorgeous new Kaisercraft papers for this project. This is one of my favorite sentiments! I think I will add some pearls below it...

Thanks for stopping by!!

Just gorgeous! I love the soft music background and the distressing with the stitching! Makes me think I should dust off my sewing machine! :)
