House Mouse Monday Challenge

This week's theme on the House Mouse Monday Challenge is

Junk.

Here's my card, I've used a beer bottle cap.

I've used a Sarah's cardmaking kit for this card which has Basic Grey Dasher papers. I've layered them onto cardstock. The pearls and blooms are also from the kit. The HM image is called "Light Wrap Christmas". I've coloured it in with promarkers and then used my Scor pal to make a border around it. I then layered it onto cardstock. The sentiment in the bottle cap is from Stampin Up. The charms have been attached with silver metallic thread and are from Ebay.

You can't really see the bottle cap in the main photo , so here is a smaller, closer pic of it.

The DT have made some gorgeous cards, you can find the challenge here
