Show us your new stash at Sparkles

Hi everyone,

It's time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. We'd love to see a project made using the new stash you got for Christmas. Here's the card I made for my bestie Sue for her birthday yesterday using the fantastic House Mouse stamp she bought me for Christmas...
I've coloured using Copics. The backing paper is First Edition 'Sweet Owl'. The sentiment is stamped on the reverse side of the backing paper. I've used Spellbinder dies (stately circles - standard and grand) adding hot fix pearls and flowers from my stash. I also got a 'Sew Stamper' for Christmas which I've used to add the detail in the bottom right hand corner.

Here's a close-up of the image...
I hope you'll pop over to the challenge and leave some love for my very talented team mates. We have a fab prize up for grabs from Marianne...

I'd like to enter this for the following:-
House Mouse and Friends - New stamp
Gruffies and Guests - Anything goes
Die Cuttin Divas - Old and New (old flowers, new stamp)

Thank you so much for calling by. I hope I'll see you again soon.

Hugs Helen xx
