We would like to welcome Nancy this week as our Designer in the October Spotlight. If you haven't visited her blog then you are in for a treat ! :-)

For my card I used this brand spanking new September House Mouse stamp of the month, this one is called Nature Bites ,,, sooo cute !! ,, just look at the size of that tummy ,, :-) Coloured with copics and the edges inked with Vintage photo ink and then dusted with bronze perfect pearls ,,, so shimmery. The papers are Cosmo Cricket and I added some American Tag twine, a button and some Hero Arts gems. I inked and added perfect pearls to all the edges and then sewed them all :-) The sentiment is from a little Hero Arts set and I added some Star Dust stickles for extra sparkle :-)

Thanks for looking, Nancy and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
