Four in one

A card for four challenges today! House Mouse and Friends challenge is lace, Friday Sketchers which has a lovely sketch this week by Carole, A Spoon full of sugar where the challege is to use three different ribbons and Papertake Weekly with a challenge to use stitching of some type which can be faux.

I used this cute housemouse and birdie singing a duet and coloured with ranger distress inks, layered on dark blue bazzil and white card that I punched a lacy style border into. I did the same with the Woodware sentiment. The angled square is more of the blue bazzil and Pink Petticoat paper and the bottom layer is also a pretty pink petticoat design paper. I doodled for the stitching element with a black fineliner, added the three ribbons, gems and a green flower with gem to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
