Sewing mouse

It's Thursday and time for an OLDIE BUT GOODIE over at Catch the Bug and a new challenge over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday. This week the optional twist - or theme - is "LAYERED CARD".

The image is called Sewing Mouse - needle and is colored with Promarkers and a silver metallic gel pen for the needle. I used a past Saturday Sketch as inspiration.

The sentiment is heat embossed on velum and is from the same set as the bobbins that came free with a magazine at some point. I decorated the bobbins with dark blue and pink thread.

The background is embossed using an EF with buttons and I used sandpaper to enhance the pattern.

DPs from Pebbles, pink sequins from stash.

This card is also for these challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Pick ANY sketch 215-375
Digi Choosday Challenge - #35 In The Pink
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - #99 Anything Goes with a twist "Make It Cute"
Craft Your Passion - Always Anything Goes
