Give me the hunny!

Hi everyone, a card today for House Mouse where this week the challenge is polka dots and also for OCC where there's a lovely sketch by Denise to follow. The HM image is marker coloured and I've added some stickles for a bit of sparkle. Papers are edge distressed and sponged with ranger distress ink and it's all layered onto a card made from Canford red card. The sentiment is from a Woodware set and I added some very funky fibre which was a gift and a blingy self adhesive jewel. There's also a little enamel charm tied on to the fibre knot but I didn't notice it wasn't facing the right way until after I uploaded it. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
