It's Always Time For Tea...

Even nap time!!!

Hi there and welcome.  Today I'm sharing a card I made with a stamp I received as a RAK (random act of kindness) from Beate.  The card has been done for a week now, I just haven't been able to upload thanks to another massive migraine over the Christmas holiday.

The image is from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps newest Moonlight Whispers release and is called Dormouse.  Isn't he the cutest??  Now I normally don't like mice, or rats for that matter, unless the mouse is in a stamp and is a cute one. 

Once I had him stamped in memento tuxedo black onto MFT white perfect panels, I pulled out some retired Prima Nursery Tales designer paper and matching flowers, then allowed the designer paper to dictate the colors I used.  After everything was colored and layered, I lightly stippled some Stampin Up! amethyst ink around the edges of the image and then pulled out a MFT Jumbo Scallop Die-Namic and cut three borders before running them through my dusty paper crimper then popping up my main image over the scallop borders.  For my final touches, I pulled out some white & lavender organdy ribbon I picked up at Dollar Tree, lavender brads from my stash, and some Prima bling for the centers of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
