It's a Girl!!

Good morning everyone

Now I decided yesterday morning that I was going to make a card to enter into



You see Matt has gone fishing with the lads for the week, he is going to enjoy himself so I thought I would too, by creating in my craft room, although I had to cut the grass, do the washing, do the shopping oh and make a decal for Mike's car first, you can imagine how quick I was :)

Funnily enough my first every house mouse stamp was this cutie so I just had to use it and it seemed quite fitting as I was listening to the news.

So here is my little creation


This is an A2 top folded card using pinks and whites and comes in a lovely crisp white box.


The base layer and contrast is some lovely pink card, the base layer is as it is, however the second pink layer has been dry embossed.  The first white layer has also been dry embossed, and then it has been distressed with TH DI Spun Sugar before adding some glitter.

The next layer is the pink with that gorgeous spellbinder die on the top again the edges on this have been distressed and a row of pearl strings has been added.  The ribbon was then wrapped around this layer before adding to the card.  Oh almost forgot to say all layers have been raised with foam tape.

The top layer has been distressed through the die before stamping the image.

The ribbon created this lovely double layer double length bow finishing off with tails on the other side, a little rose, a pearl medallion and a charm dummy.

The inside matches.

And this is that first ever house mouse stamp, you can see why I got addicted to them so easily.
I used my copics to colour them up.


As always I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers and welcome my new followers.  I will be over for a visit in a short while.

Don't forget if you have not already entered I have some celebration candy in the side bar.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

In the Pink - Fussy and Fancy or CAS

Hugs and enjoy the rest of your bank holiday weekend
