Skating mouse

Here is another card with one of Melissa Jenkins's cute images. She is the sponsor for the challenge at Cooking it up with Katie this week and the recipe has to include texture, swirls and black.
The texture is in the form of a Papermania embossed section, the swirls are on the fab Cuddly Buddly Fairy Fun paper and the black is kind of obvious!
I coloured this young lady with Copics and then added some Glamour Dust to her dress I always think of skaters in fancy costumes.
I couldn't find any card amongst my stash which toned suitably with the patterned  paper, so I simply coloured the edge of  some card with one of the Copics I used for the dress, to use as the base layer.
The tag comprises a Stampin' Up sentiment punched out and mounted on a Cuttlebug tag.
I did wonder about adding a little something else... fancy corners or adhesive gems, but decided to quit whilst I was ahead!
This is my final card as DT member of CIUWK as I have decided to step down, so I hope you like it.


  1. Beautiful card
    That mousie's little face so cute lol

    I love my Big Shot, yes it is a bit more cumbersome that the bug. But I've always maintained its far sturdier and more unbreakable...NOT that you are likely to break the bug I guess lol I had the non electric one, then upgraded to the electric version, which is FAB. As far as 'doing the job' there isn't anything between them, although as far as I know the big XL dies dont fit the bug...sure someone will correct me though!
