Anything Goes with a Special Cut with the House Mouse Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the

where the wonderfully talented America is hosting the challenge with the theme of

Anything Goes with a Special Cut
this could be a special cut card, or an image showing a special cut

Our Sponsors this week

HM Stamps 
($10 Gift Cert)

offering an extra prize of 3 New HM Stamps

Here is my design team inspirational piece, however don't forget to hop over to the main challenge site to see the rest of the gorgeous eye candy.
Now I tried to make a card out of the box for this one, but ended up locating an image to suit the theme and then created a card, but the papers and the black stuff (again still not sure what this stuff is actually called) well anyway they came from the wonderful Paula :)  they really set the feel of the card.  This card could be an any occasion card, as although their are love and kisses on the layer paper and a heart on the image and the charm, without a sentiment on the front or inner it could be for many occasions.

The base layer and contrast is black card.  The MS double heart punch has been used on the corners and the layer.  The ribbon is from Grimsby crafts, the charm from the wonderful Paula as are the papers.  I added pearls around the image on the edge punch and corner punches and a little rose tinted with DH.

Here is a close up of the image the heart special cut with teeth :).
Do hop over and join us for the challenge :)
