Bonjour--Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #105

It's been awhile since I've participated in the WMSC, but the current sketch by Teresa Kline is a great one to get back into challenge mode.

Imagine these patterns and colors in lovely French County inspired room with plaster walls, dark beams, and   huge sparkling multi-paned windows with a view of a lush cottage garden and mountains in the distance--Sigh!-- With this card I can escape the reality of furniture and floors that need dusting, dirty dull windows,and wilting flowers and crunchy grass :)

I used WM French Country stamp set for the focal point and top two patterned layers. Those background stamps are SO EASY to use!  The black and cream stripe patterned is patterned paper. Two stamped chipboard buttons anchor the black strip trimmed with pinking scissors. 

Thanks for stopping by,
