Cosy and Warm

Good Evening...

Cosy and warm is the best title I could think of today given that the weather here is enough to blow you over and freeze you to death!  I am chuckling to myself now as I realise that  I start most of my Blog posts off with a comment about our Great British Weather (not)! 

Today's card is made with a House Mouse Stamp - 'Knit Gift', I think this is such an adorable image!

I coloured the image with copic markers, mounted and layered it up with some Papermania papers and used a sheet of Papermania Kraft card embossed with dots as the background.  

I slightly distressed the edges of the image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - 'Tea Dye'.  (Never done that before but I thought it was about time I gave it a go and the white card needed dulling down a bit)!

I added some natural twine from The Ribbon Girl and some jute ribbon. adhesive pearls and embellishments from my trinket box.  Finally to finish the card off I added two little labels stamped with Lili of the Valley sentiment tags and embossed with clear powder. 

I decided to try and make this card a little less fussy as I did n't want to overwhelm these two delightful little mouse friends.
