A Stitched, Polk-a-Dot, QUILT, ...

It's all about ... D O T S ... at House-Mouse and Friends MC!Come join the great FUN with Challenge #HMFMC193, found HERE.  I went with a colorful QUILT for my take...
Isn't that Quilt Grid so fun in these bright colors and those little Mousey guys sewing it? heheh :) I've multi-layered the cut-out Quilt frame.  The various color pieces that cut-out from the Quilt die were also cut out of different colored Polk-a-dot papers then adhered to the Quilt's openings for this  colorful  look. For my focal image, I only used a small part of the stamped image that was small enough to fit into this die-cut square frame (cut with CE/Sue Wilson's NY Collection Herald Square die set). The outer white frame was cut with the Spellbinders Postage Stamps Die. It was the perfect cut for showcasing these guys and left spots for adding pearls to the opened edges. The sentiment is stamped and cut with the CE/SW Pierced Flag Die.
