Happy Lord's day Sunday. We are just about ready to head out to church and I had a few minutes so I thought that I would show you a card using one of my favorite images these days- Cocoa mouse. This cutie is from the newly released So Sweet Cocoa set from Sweet N Sassy stamps.

I stamped the image onto Neenah white, colored with copics, added stickles to the frosting, distressed the edges by sponging with antique linen distress ink, and then sewed around the edges. The strip across the middle was run through the heart cuttlebug folder and lace followed by ribbon was added on top. The roses were spritzed with dazzling diamonds glimmer mist. There is alot of dimension on this card as each layer is adhered with foam tape (good thing I have a gigantic roll that I got at Staples lol).
