Fetch A Sketch Challenge 7 - Midway Extra

It's time for the Midway Extra and for some more inspiration at Fetch A Sketch! As a reminder, our current sponsor is Polkadoodles and a copy of A Double Sprinkle of Kraft cd is up for grabs.

As a reminder, here is our sketch:And here is my little extra! I've used papers from Pretty Sweet and distressed the edges of the backing with my scissors and added some black ink. I've made the bunting by snipping a square of four from one of the patterned sheets and hanging it over the embroidery thread line!

The embroidery thread is a recent find at the scrap store plus the other ribbon is from my stash along with the brads with the heart bead was a donation from Lynsey!

The challenge closing date is Sunday 2 October at 12noon GMT and don't forget you can use any of your stash, combine the challenge with as many others as you want and enter as many times as you wish! All we ask is that you follow the sketch and that it is recognisable. For more details please visit the challenge blog.
