Whiff of Joy meets Die Cut Dreams

Oh Wow I enjoyed making this card, it is my entry into the Whiff of Joy challenge this week which is ' paper piecing ' I was so excited when my new parcel of Whiff of Joy stamps arrived this week that I didn't know which one to use first ! Seeing as this is the fella that I have wanted for the longest time I decided to use him. I have paper pieced the huge cupcake that he is carrying, it was slightly fiddley cutting round the little paws but well worth the effort. I am also entering this card for the new Die cut Dreams Challenge where the theme this week is 'polka dots & spots'

I had my sewing machine out this weekend making a Viking outfit for Sophie to wear at their history day at school, so thought I would do a little stitching on a couple of cards too, it gives a lovely effect and adds another texture which is always good.
I have coloured Henry Mouse with my Copics, and the papers I have used are K&Co for the cupcake and mount, and Imaginesce for the spotty background, this paper is covered in fluffy dots, wish you could feel it, it is delish.........

I have used some ribbon from my stash and a few cherry blossoms that I picked up from Ebay to complete the look, the fern leaves are done using a LeoneEm punch. Oh, and I added a few funky fibres under the blossoms, again for a bit more texture.
