Teatime!

This is yet another of my new stamps from yesterdays shopping expedition, I was hoping to be able to get a few Whipper Snapper stamps - I didn't find many but I couldn't pass up this adorable little creature! I thought this would be the perfect stamp to use for Beate's Sketch challenge. This week Beate decided that the card we create be a gate fold card.

I also decided that this card would work for the limited supply challenge seeing that my other card I created wouldn't. The little flower is a set of 4 stamps which come in different sizes, I love this stamp it is sooo useful. The flower on the cup the mouse is sitting in reminded me of this little flower so I thought it would make the perfect background for this card. I stamped the flower all over my white card using black ink, colored it in with my tria's. I was going to leave it there but I really didn't like the look of all that white space that was left in between the flowers - I wanted it to better match the cup - so I got my tria I used to color the cup and colored in the background - thank goodness for alcohol pens!
