HM&F #48 - a Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday to all you House Mouse & Friends Lovers... Today's challenge is a SKETCH - given by our very own Emma . Have fun with the sketch, just remember to use at least one House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies image.

Sassy Crafts will be sending one luck person chosen at random a lucky dip bag of goodies.

Here is my take on the challenge. The cute stamp I used is from Stampabilities - House-Mouse Designs - called "Donut Bliss" featuring Muzzy. I stamped the image on Whisper white using Stazon Jet Black Ink.. I coloured the image with Prismacolour pencil crayons and gamsol. Image was cut out with Nestability Labels II folder, matted with chocolate chip Nesty scalloped square. Sewed edges, pierced holes, added Diamond Stickles to the donut icing and pierced holes. Tied on the pink sheer ribbon to the silver butterfly charm (looks like antenna's). Main card is 5 1/2 x 51/2 White card stock. The text and polka dot designer paper is from DCWC Safari Kids Stack. Matted all panels with chocolate chip, sewed all edges. Added the brown satin and pink/brown ribbon. Stamped sentiment on vellum and cut out with oval Nestability. Attached sentiment with mini pink brads. Popped up image panel.
This also qualifies for last weeks Ways to Use it challenge WT228 on Splitcoast stampers - to use a charm on your card/project (butterfly charm).
