Virtual Stamp Night - A Cheesy Hello

I decided to do a little stamping after work tonight - I remembered it was the Virtual Stamp Night over on Split Coast Stampers. The challenge card I made was FEB09VSND "New Love" - to make a card with new items that you have received in the last two months or something that you have been hording and never used.
I also combined two other challenges in this card. This weeks ways to use it WT206 - use stripes
and the limited supply challenge LSC208 - use green, limited to two embellishments and limit the layers to only three.

I just received this cute House Mouse stamp in the mail today - how lucky was that (my DH purchased this for me on E-Bay). So I inked it up for my card - I also love taking pictures - so I felt this was the perfect stamp to use. Also, I just purchased my designer paper on Tuesday, the expoxy sentiment I received at Christmas time from my Mother-in-Law (Sharron).

I stamped the image with stazon timber brown on water colour paper and water coloured it with Stampin up reinkers. Cut image out with rectangle nestability, sponged edges with old olive and doodled frame with black marker. Main card is certainly celery, next is garden green, designer paper is double sided from My Minds Eye - Bloom and Grow - Vines. Punched rectangle slot in HM image with slot punch - tied on striped ribbon and heat curled. Added expoxy oval sentiment. This card did take me the full 45 minutes to make...
