Have a good read

   This is a card for one of my grandsons.
   The images are from another set of Brambly Hedge stamps from Crafter's Companion, this time from their new collection 'The High Hills'. I have coloured them using Promarkers with a little from a gold gel pen on the book spines. The mouse image was cut out using a Spellbinders die and matted and layered onto a black circular mirri card and a silvery gold scalloped mirri card, both having been cut out using a Spellbinders die. The set of books was hand cut.
   The window pane backing paper was from something I printed off about a year ago and had partly used. This I matted and layered onto silver mirri card, black mirri card and white card. I then attached a strip of black mirri card horizontally across the middle.
   The sentiment was stamped using a stamp from the same set and was matted onto black mirri card which had been cut out using another Spellbinders die.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Lacy Sunshine - include a window  
   Nutcrafter's - B is for books
   Crafty Catz - one for the boys
   The Squirrel and the Fox - for a male
   Digi Designs - all about animals
   Sweet Pea Stampers - use lots of layers
   Craft Room - something old (window pane paper) and something new (stamp)
   Addicted to Stamps and More - make your mark
   Simon Says Stamp Monday - stamp
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
