Coffee Mice

I have made this card using  Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Project Book and cd.  The backing paper is from the Boofle cd by Do Crafts.  I have embossed some pearlescent card with a Spellbinders folder to which I coloured with pink mica powder.  To finish off I used a Martha Stewart edging punch (thanks Cheryl!), made a little hessian sack, modelled three coffee beans from clay and die cut some flowers and leaves.
I am entering the following challenges:
"Liquid Refreshment" at the  HouseMouse Challenge
"Embossing - Dry or Heat" at The Joanna Sheen Challenge


  1. Wow stunning card, love the house mouse and the coffee beans are just wonderful. Well done

  2. This is gorgeous Michelle, I love the little sack with the mouse disapearing inside.
