Cooking it up with Katie

Wednesday has come around again, so its time for a new challenge from Cooking it Up with Katie!! This week Katie has another great recipe for your cards and crafty creations:
  • leaf
  • embossing
  • sticker
Here's my card made with a supercute stamp from Jazzlins Designs - dont' you just love that little mouse tucking in to that Christmas pudding??

The bps are from Raspberry Road designs. I cut an aperture in the green distressed paper using a die from Marianne Designs (ok, it was an accident, I cut the shape out to use on another card and noticed it fitted this image perfectly lol). I've lightly distressed around the edges of the papers and the aperture with a craft knife and then embossed with  ranger queen's gold EP.  I used some vintage photo DI around the inside of the frame. I've used an EK success border punch for the border and some paper flowers and leaves (also from Jazzlins). I added some clear gems coloured with alcohol inks for the centres. The sentiment is one of my favourites from Elusive Images, again embossed with gold EP. The ribbon and brads are from my stash. I don't use many stickers but added a cute little mouse sized Christmas stocking to finish the card off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Tuesday Taggers: More than 2 legs (although you can only see Mr Mouses nose and ears lol)
Ellephantastic: Anything goes
Craftalicious: Anything goes
Bah Humbug: Christmas Cuties

Thanks for calling by, I hope you'll cook up something with Katie's recipe this week
