Waltzingmouse Bedtime Story #1 and Colour Q #200

Raise your hand if you miss Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges. I imagine there are a lot of hands up in the air right now, including both of mine. I have really missed the weekly challenges, something I always looked forward to each week, but now there is something almost as good to look forward to. Each month after the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party, a new sketch will be posted...a bedtime story sketch and today is Bedtime Story Sketch #1. Here is the sketch we have to use:
Lots of ways to go with this one...but I kept coming back to one idea...using Waltzingmouse French Country and the gorgeous border image from that set.

I chose my colors for this card based on Colour Q #200. The colors this week were
I love this color combination and stamped my border and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored the border with copics in colors to match the Colour Q colors. I pinked the edges and layered the border over some navy cardstock. For the background, I used Waltzingmouse Chicken Wire and another pattern and sentiment from French Country.
My last touch was a die cut rooster from PTI On the Farm. I love that little rooster! So, have you made started on your Bedtime Story card yet? You have one week to get one posted to the Waltzingmouse blog...can't wait to see the upcoming sketches every month.

I haven't played with any of the WM challenges, but I am certainly enjoying the samples I am seeing! I love this French Country look and it works great with the CQC colors! Thanks for playing!

You know I'm missing the sketches too - but now I get to play with you again here Cathy! I really love the colors - the way you colored the border and that die cut chicken. Can you believe I haven't used my chicken wire yet? You've inspired me to get it out here! The little sentiment tab reminds me of a hand written recipe card tab!

I had to miss the pajama party but it looks like it's going to be lots of fun. Your card is just awesome! The background patterns are perfect and I LOVE the colored French Country border. When I saw the rooster, I thought it was something you had machine cut. Then had to smile when you said it was a PTI die. I had forgotten that I have that set!!
