Penny Black Challenge #25 Card- No Patterned Paper

Find Penny Black Challenge#25 Here.

This weeks Penny Black Challenge was to make a card with no Patterned Paper. Quite the challenge with so much cute Christmas and winter paper out there.Here's the card I came up with.

The Background paper is Glossy Card stock I ran through the Cuddle Bug with the Snowflake embossing folder. It's coloured with SU Bayou Blue Ink first by sponging and the by rubbing the ink pad across the the entire piece which really brought out the snowflakes. I then sponged a narrow strip of glossy card stock with Bayou Blue ink and stamped Penny Black sentiment stamp along the edges and layered it onto a piece of Bayou Blue card stock and attached to the card front.

The Mouse is is stamped on a seperate piece of cardstock, watercolored, cut out and mounted with pop dots. The snowflakes are punched with a Martha Stewart craft punch. I added the dots with a teal pen and a dab of stickles in the center each except the one the mouse is holding which I thought needed a little extra something. So I added glitter to the whole snowflake and a gem to the center. Thanks for looking.
