   It is one of my niece's wedding anniversary next month so I have made this card for her and her husband.
   I stamped the image from Joanna Sheen's 'Happy Days' set of House Mouse Designs stamps and cut it out using a Spellbinders lacy oval die. Masking off the moon, I used distress ink to create the sky and water background. I then coloured the image using Promarkers. This I attached to a square of black card and glued mini gems into each of the semi-circles.
   I matted a layer of light blue core'dinations cardstock onto white card and then fixed the topper to this. Buttons threaded onto twine were used to decorate the edges of the card and more mini gems were glued into the loops formed by the twine.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   House Mouse and Friends - anything goes with twine
   Joanna Sheen - button it up!
