My first Gruffies & Guests DT Challenge #25 - Bingo

I was chuffed to little mint balls to be chosen for the Gruffies & Guests Design Team and I have loved using my House Mouse stamps again. I had forgotten how many of these cute stamps I had - how many of our stamps get forgotten about and go unused.

I join the group for Challenge #25 - Bingo. If you would like to pop over and join in here is our link:

DT member Kym is provided the prize for the winner this month, I love surprises and she is putting up a 'suprise' for the winner. You can visit Kym's blog here:

Here is my very first DT card for Challenge #25, I have used the middle line of the Bingo board - Ribbons / Pearls, Gems / Embossing:

I am not sure whether this little Mouse looks fed up or is just relaxing but either way it's a little cutie. This is a 5" x 7" cards and I decided to 'extend' the flowers upwards from the stamp using die cut flowers. A tag with a sentiment and a ribbon to finish off the card. I used the gorgeous Textures Embossing Folder (stone wall) from Crafter's Companion and distress inks to shade the bricks.

Thank you for popping by to visit, would love to hear what you think of this card x
