House Mouse & Friends Challenge

I haven't been able to take part in this challenge for a while but as it is running for two weeks I made time!!

The challenge was to use embossing on your item.


So for this one I used a blank white DL card turned on it's side. I embossed the whole of the card with a cuttlebug embossing folding. I then added the papers which are from K& Co. To tie in with the papers I did a herringbone stitch around the card edges with a turquoise thread. I also embossed the strip of paper across the middle with a border cuttlebug embossing folder. I received the House Mouse image from Michelle O, thanks Michelle. x I coloured it in with promarkers and then added stickles to the "water and bubble" bits. I layered it onto the same paper and then adhered it to the card with 3D pads. The photo corners are an Ellison thin cut die.

As always the DT's work is outstanding again. Absolutely gorgeous creations. Why not have a look and join in? You can find the blog here
