The Pink Elephant challenge #20

Hello all,
another mid-day post,
just means I went to bed mid-project...
I've been venturing around in blogland
trying out different challenge blogs and
today I'm sharing an entry for
The Pink Elephant
This week they have provided a sketch to play with
and here's my take on it:

Lot's of favorite things here,
House Mouse stamp (Dreampuff),
Weathered Wood and Frayed Burlap distressing,
Basic Grey paper,
craft cardstock,
charm from Blue Moon beads,
coloured with my watercolour pencils,
flocked with Stampendous Fun Flock,
and some help from my Fiskars doiley punch,
to disguise my circular calamities.

I am happy to be joining in at TPE with a sketch
because that seems like easing in gently:

Great sketch, no??
I was lurking around their blog last night
and was wowed by how amazing the
DT's creations are week after week,
and am all-around impressed with the content ;)
I know, a little slow on the uptake, I am,
but happy to have found them, no less.
Well, thank you for coming by to see my project,
please feel welcome to leave a comment if you wish,
or stick around and check out some other cards
I've been creating lately.
Take Care,

The punch: Fiskars antique elegance.

That mouse looks so comfy. Love the circular doily you created, looks wonderful with the
puffy cotton he/she is sleeping on. Such a great card, hardly ever think to use craft paper, you have inspired me!

So precious!
Beautiful papers!
Love how you distressed the edges.
And the color combo is so nice.
What a beauty!

Stephanne! This is so subtly gorgeous and I am glad that you had a circular calamity because the fiskars "doily" is the icing on the cake, so to speak. Thanks for your wonderful comment on my blog. You certainly made my day happy!

Hi Stephanne - this is gorgeous. I don't think I've ever seen a Fiskar's Doily punch used so beautifully - it suits that adorable image perfectly. Fabulous distressing and details.
Forgive my lack of commenting at the moment - it's the last time I shall be moving house believe me.
