Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #199, Mickey & Friends, Our Daily Bread Designs "Missing You", & Hero Arts "Year Round Sentiments" Stamp Set

Happy Sketch Sunday everyone! Today's sketch is #199 and here it is:
You can find details about the challenge here:

I created the Mickey & Friends card using paper from Michael's (possibly Recollections?)  that is covered with 1 3/4 " squares of Disney character faces. This is a small part of the 12x12 paper:

 I cut the individual squares down to fit the sketch size, mounted them on black card stock and popped them on dimensional adhesive.  I used white Bazzill as the background, added more layers of red and black, and then added some hand-stitching in red using Omega thread. 

The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Design's "Missing You" set and you can find it here:

I have been trying to find more ways to use this Disney character paper so I cut the squares 
down last week for this card and sketch challenge #198:

Here is last week's sketch:

I did have to alter the placement of the bow to accommodate the sentiment tag (and yes the sentiment is from a Hero Arts Operation Write Home set called "Year Round Sentiments" but I cut the rubber stamp sentiment so that I could stack it when needed.)

And since I have been playing with Disney papers all week creating child-friendly cards, I also created this one using some alphabet letters:

The sentiment on this card is from the same Hero Arts Operation Write Home set and you can find it here:
