Cuddle Mice

This card was fun to make but after I was finished I thought I should have made it into a canvas!  7" x 7" (almost 18cm x 18cm) and I still managed to have embellishments fall outside of that measurement! Well my thinking was that I wanted to added lots of embellishments but I also wanted to show some of Maja Design's gorgeous "Vintage Romace" papers.  Ummm....well I tried!!!  LOL!

The image is from Whimsy Stamps called "Cuddle Mice".  It reminds me of how I feel these days with this winter just dragging.  I just want to stay in bed!  LOL!!  But WOW did it ever take me awhile.  Ok BUT there were 2 contributing factors.  I am a little slow as I'm still practicing my distress inks and also there was a hockey game on tv.  ha ha ha!!  The hockey game was 3 hours but I still wasn't finished however, I was pretty satisfied with how it turned out.  Time well spent I thought.  hee hee  I added some "Diamond Dust"glitter to the pom pom on the hat and over the grey flooring.  FUN!!!  

I know I've said it before but I LOVE these metal leaves!!  You can bend and shape them quite easily so they have a lot of form to them.  Seems the Marianne die is a "go to" for me right now but it's just the perfect shape and size for layering.  After I added the WO English roses I put some glitter on those as well.  OH AND I added more to the miniature glass jar.  Those are fun too!

The Marianne "tassel dies" are so easy to make but adding them under the "filigree flat back pearl", wax cord bow and seam binding bow seemed like the perfect addition.  

I hope you've enjoyed this one!  I know I did!
