Whiff of Joy - A sketch by Bev and a GDT Call

Here we are another Wednesday already, which means another challenge over at Whiff of Joy Challenge, where this week we have an awesome sketch for you by the amazing Bev, this is my DT card. I have used Henry celebrating mouse, he really is such a sweetie, I have coloured him with my Copics and used white gel pen for hilights. I haven't done any paper piecing for a while so thought I would do some on this card, I stamped his cupcake onto the 2 papers i was using for this card and have paper pieced the icing and the cupcake wrapper, a tad fiddly round his little paws but well worth the effort.

The papers i have used for this project are MME Laundry Line, they both have glitter on which doesn't really show on the photos very well. For my border i have used a fiskars embossing punch and have distressed the edge then added some braid. The flowers are from my stash and the sentiment is SU.

The other DT's have some amazing cards to share with you this week so please be sure to check out their blogs, it will be worth the visits. lastly there is some exciting news for you.........................
