Naughty Mouse !!! :-)

I made this card following the lovely sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge I am also entering this into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge whose theme is Animal Antics,, well this mouse is up to some mischief eh !! :-)
The House Mouse Monday challenge are asking for Buttons,, so this qualifies for that one too :-)

I coloured the image with copics and added copic sparkle pen to the 'string' ;-)The papers are DCWV glitter pack ans purple coredinations, :-)The fancy edge is made using a Martha Stewart punch.

The buttons and rinnon are from my stash and the sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on ;-)
The stamp, copics glitter pens and the rub ons are all from Simon Says Stamp :-)Heidi is sponsoring some lovely candy at the top of my blog if you would like to have a look :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

The image I used is from a RAK from Jo, thanks hun x x The papers are from 2 different sets of papers from Funky Fairys Papercrafts I love the way you can coordinate them ! The background paper is from the Simply Brushed set and the go faster stripes are from the Shabby Christmas Time kit which goes to show you can use some of them the whole year ! :-)

The image was coloured with copics and 3 D's onto the oval nestie shape, the text was cut out on my cricut. The arrow is a grungeboard die cut and the wheel is from a Tim Holtz sprocket set which I attached with a brad. The fancy edge was made with a fiskars diamond border punch and the ribbons are from my messy draw ;-) The eyelets just finished it off :-)

This week TARA from Inking On The Edge has agreed to join us in the Designer Spotlight :-)She has made THE most gorgeous card :-) Please don't forget to leave her a nice comment :-)

I bought this lovely Tilda stamp and Magnolia tree last January,, daft time to buy Christmas stamps I know but at the time I was intending to make a christmas card a week !! Well !! This is her first inking ! :-)
I sprayed the background with my new copics air gun,,, oohh it is so much fun,, I still need to practise a bit but I do love the effect it gives ;-) I then stamped the tree and added green glitter. The Tilda was coloured with copics and 3D'd in front of the tree. I used a copics glitter pen to add more sparkle,,they are gorgeous pens, then I added the red crystal gem 'baubles'
The star was punched out and smothered in red glitter, the snowflake is a spellbinders die cut ,, smothered in glitter and the tree charm was hung on gold wire that I twirled around a skewer,,, oh yes ,, the paper is from a DCWV Glitter Christmas pack.

I followed Beckys fabulous sketch on the Sketch and Stash challenge
I am also entering this card in the One Stop Craft Challenge who are asking for Die Cuts.
