House Mouse 'Sunshine Wishes'

Hi folks! Just one more sleep until I set off for Alley Pally... can't wait! Really looking forward to spending some 'quality craft shopping time' with my buddy... you know who you are (I shall be stalking you for your autograph tee hee)
Here's a card I made using some stamps from the House Mouse Summer stamp design collection. These are from the 'Drinks' plate.
The papers are from my huge DCWV craft chest. I just couldn't leave the sand patterned paper alone so I spritzed it with Gold Mica Spray; screwed it up; flattened it out; gently inked with black brilliance dewdrop pad and tore an apperture in the middle. I coloured the stamped image with my Prisma colouring pencils. The ric rac and zig zag borders are buy Doodlebug. The sentiment is also from the set. I stamped it, die cut it using my Nestabilities and embossed over the whole sentiment with glitter embossing powder. I matted this onto a scalloped layer again die cut with Nestabilities. The umbrella's are also from the stamp set.
I used more of the DCWV patterned paper, stamps and Nestabilities to decorate the inside of the card this time adding a knotted ribbon.
Lots to do before I get some sleep.
Ciao for now!

Ooooooooooooooooh wow Sandra totally gorgeous as always.
I'm gutted I'm not allowed to buy these stamps - I have a pact with my daughter that I won't so that come Christmas and birthdays she can buy me craft goodies/stamps and know that I don't already have them, but it's killing me them being in Joanna's and not being able to order.
