Feeling Sketchy Week 4 - Kindness Matters with Paper Piecing

Another Monday has arrived, which means it's time for the newest sketch at Feeling Sketchy! The sketch is one I thought I would struggle with, but as I sat down to create, I was pleasantly surprised!
I set myself a challenge for this card, it was to use only scraps (except the base card.) I trawled through my box of half cut papers, and came across this black spotty paper and some dictionary print (from Kaisercraft) The pink chevron paper is from My Minds Eye. I started with the polka dot paper, and carefully stamped and embossed a lace border (MME) in white. The butterflies (from PTI) are stamped on patterned paper, and carefully cut out and popped on to white die cut butterflies (die cut from PTI too) they were then layered onto black circles and attached to the dictionary print. I tied a Pretty in Pink bow (scrap piece of ribbon) and attached it to the card. This card was finished off with a Kindness Matters sentiment, from the Stampin' Up! set of the same name. 
Check out this weeks sketch -

I'm also linking this up to the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World....  I was inspired by the colours (not so much the black) and the butterflies :)
Don't forget to pop over to the blog and play, or share some love with my fellow sketchettes :)
