Cat, dog & Mouse!

Morning all, todays card is actually inspired by a card which I received from the lovely head Ladybug Kerry, not sure if she has blogged this one previously but I just have to share hers!! 


The image is beautifully coloured with lots of shimmer and glitter, I just love the cleaness of this card, and it came as a suprise and cheered me up no end!! 
When I eventually pulled my finger out, I wanted to try out one of my new whipper snapper stamps, however I never realised just how big this one was until it arrived, so I copied the layout of the card from Kerry and used it for inspiration. 


I coloured the image with a mix of copics and promarkers, used brown spotty satin ribbon and a big button which I actually stitched (properly stitched!) onto the ribbon. The papers are Max and Whiskars by basic grey. I glossy accented the noses of all 3. 

Overall, I am happy with the card, but think the image is a bit too big!! 

Thanks for looking!!
