Phew.... a House Mouse stinker!!

Hi folks! Here's another House Mouse card. This time with a cute image from the the 'Berry' stamp set. I stamped the image with smoky grey versafine ink and coloured it with my Prisma colour pencils and Sansodor. The next layer is a piece of brown card that I spritzed with Gold Mica Mist and attacked with a small scalloped border punch (EK Success). The base layer is some crumpled up Kraft paper that I flattened out and gently rubbed some black ink over.
I folded over a piece of patterned paper and used a different scallop border punch to create the fancy edge. I adhered this to the edge of the card and used my Cinch to create the holes. I added lots of ribbon, both sheer and textured, to the card and finished it off with some self adhesive pearls.
The inside of the card is just more patterned paper, some stamping (the sentiment is also from the set) and layering up using Nestabilities.
Ciao for now!
