An Oldie but Goodie, A Sketch and A Reminder about the Freebie Friday at Bugaboo!

Hi, everyone! It's an Oldie But Goodie Day at Catch the Bug Blog today. This is the image that is a freebie thisweek at Bugaboo Stamps, so it's not too old! He's a perfect little image to start working on your Christmas cards, if you haven't already! It's never too early to start those, I think!
You can pick up this image in the store for free, but only for a limited time!

Here is my card using the freebie for this week:

I've used some craps from my stash - a bunch of thin strips I had laying in a box. I am loving this flashback to the "old school" quilt background sketches, and you'll certainly see more of it from me! It's such a great way to  use up scrap strips of older papers!
I'm happy to share all the dimensions with you, so you can create your own, I'd love it if you'd link back to me for credit if you should use the sketch, too, but it certainly isn't required! :)
Here it is:
These dimensions are for a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (A2 size) card.
