Tuesday's Sketch with Skipping Stone Design

This month Tuesday's means sketch time at Skipping Stones Design.  This beautiful stamp set is one of their new releases called Garden Stamp Kiss and includes a few textured designs, a silhouette butterfly and this darling bird.

Did you notice that each of the little squares contains a stamped script design? I stamped those using Garden Stamp Kiss before I die cut and layered them on my card.

Here is this weeks sketch over at Skipping Stones Design:

Skipping Stones Sketch 116 (today)

It really is fun to play along with sketches - I hope we have inspired you to try something new and get your crafty on.  Don't forget to link up here too!

Looks like I forgot to link up the die template I used on this card. Thanks Patty for asking this question..
I used Spellbinders S4-315 Beaded Squares.  To make these little quilted looking squares I first stamped the script image and then positioned my die template over them and cut/embossed them with my Grand Calibur.  I ran pastel chalk over the embossed edges to give them a vintage feel.  Those cut out edges were perfect for me to hand-stitch a border too :)
