Cocoa Time

  The background for this card is core'dination cardstock embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder from the Beatrix Potter range and then sanded. A strip from the core'dinations whitewash collection, embossed with a Darice folder called 'clock background' (again from Crafter's Companion) and also sanded, was attached to the left hand side of the card.
  The stamp used is from Joanna Sheen's collection of House Mouse designs and is coloured using Promarkers. After  lightly distressing the edges of the topper with fired brick distress ink I mounted it onto maroon mirri card and then attached it to the card with foam pads. A circular sentiment was added to finish the card.

  I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
  QKR Stampede- no squares allowed
  Creative Corner - eat, drink and be merry
  House Mouse and Friends - liquid refreshment
  Passion For Promarkers - sketch
  Crafter's Companion - animals
