Stamptacular Challenge 13

Here we are at Stamptacular Challenge 13, where the theme is "Party Animal" and one lucky winner will receive some gorgeous SU goodies from Emma who is our sponsor this week.

For my DT card I have used a house mouse image that I received from a blog bud and it is coloured with distress inks. The papers are from K & Co and they go perfectly with the image....well I think so anyway!!! I kept the layout simple as the papers are so detailed I didn't want to make the card too busy. The embossing was done using my swiss dots folder, the ribbon is from my stash and I finished off with four small jewels.

On the inside of my card I added a recipe for strawberry and vanilla shortcakes which I did on my computer using the font lucinda handwriting. The sentiment us from SU and the two flourishes were done using my spellbinders doodle parts die.

Card/Paper: Red and white card, K & Co paper
Stamp: House mouse, SU sentiment
Colouring: Distress inks - fired brick, vintage photo, walnut stain, tattered rose, peeled paint and weathered wood.
Embellishments: Ribbon, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots folder, doodle parts

Thanks for looking. x
