Sewn with Love Cocoa Mouse Card

Happy Monday!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I am back today with a cute card using stamps from Sweet N Sassy. It is the ever so cute Cocoa Mouse. For extra inspiration, I used this weeks sketch from The Sweet Stop.

Really cute sketch with the spin of Stitching. So, I got the sewing machine reved up and added a couple rows of a decorative stitch, and some straight stitching to the card using green thread.

Materials: All the stamps are from Sew Happy Cocoa-Sweet N Sassy; CS-Crushed Curry and Certainly Celery from Stampin' Up, Watercolor paper from Strathmore; DP from K. I. Memories; Ink- Crushed Curry from SU,Stazon black, Scattered Straw from Ranger. The paper buttons are made with a Spellbinders Die from Crushed Curry CS and distressed with Scattered Straw ink.

I stamped the image with Stazon and watercolored it. I added some color to the background with Crushed Curry ink. Layered with Cs and papers. I added the stitching before I glued the main section to the card base which is made of Crushed Curry CS.
