House Mouse Challenge
Should be finished the last bit of the decorating tomorrow and hopefully get back to normal for a couple of weeks before we start again. I hate decorating, but love the end result!
This is another card that I made in stages, due to lack of crafting time. It is for the House Mouse challenge which is More than 1 fold. This is the first time I have made a stepper card. I followed the tutorial on Cats Wiskers blog. This is a large image - courtesy of Diane, so I had to alter the sizes a bit.
I had the idea for this card and wanted to make all the little embellishments to go with it. I stitched embroidery thread around the little mouse at the front. The image is coloured with Promarkers and I used Magenta stickles on the heart. The papers are from the freebie pack from Quick Cards last month.
I am also entering this card in Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Sarah Hurley challenge - Four legged friends
