House Mouse

Hi folks, all I can say this morning is thank goodness its Friday. After a hectic week at work I'm so looking forward to the weekend and lots of time for crafting! I haven't done much at all this week but I did have a play with this months freebie from Craft Stamper and made a few backgrounds. I've used one for this little 'House Mouse' birthday card


The image is coloured with promarkers and I added some stickles to the icing. The background is made using tattered rose and antique linen distress inks and then stamped/masked using the lovely flower freebie from Craft Stamper. I cut the background into 3, distressed with my craft knife and black versafine ink and mounted them with 3d foam tape. The image is layered on black card and again mounted with 3d foam. I stamped the HOTP sentiment onto the image and added a couple of the extra flowers with silicone, the flowers have little black button centres and a touch of stickles too.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
I love promarkers: Distressing
C.R.A.F.T: Cakes and Icecream
Donna's Den: Sketch (i've rotated the sketch this time)
Passion for Promarkers: Give us a laugh
Raise the bar: Baked Goods

Thanks for looking, hope you have a good Friday
its nearly the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!
