Sweet Little Challenge

Well, I have just fallen in love with a sweet little mouse!! Ok, those are words
I honestly can say I thought I'd NEVER say....lol. This little mouse is just as
cute as it can be!! It's Sweet N' Sassy stamps Cocoa Mouse! I did this card for
their challenge #SSS91. I had to use this sketch:

You can see I flipped the sketch on it's side, and as it says it was "with a spin"
.....the spin being dry embossing. I used the Tim Holtz Snowflurries folder,
rubbed the edges of my paper with white paint dauber first, and then inked
the folder with broken china distress ink. After I ran it thru my cuttle bug,
I trimmed it down, and then sanded it all over to give it a softer look. Then it
was just dressing little Cocoa up....with some ribbon, bling and buttons. Used
spellbinders to cut the frames.

Yep, you'll be seeing more of Cocoa very soon.....I already have some images
colored for more cards, can't wait to get started!!
