Have a "micey" nice day

I've combined a couple of challenges on this card: I used the Sketch & Stash sketch; and the Penny Black Saturday Challenge colour combo of 'Blue, Tan & Cream'. I used a couple of stamps from my new 'Micey Day' set...and found a sheet of paper in my BasicGrey 'Granola' pad that fitted in with the colour scheme. I then embossed a couple of pieces of Core'dinations Whitewashed card (using the 'Spots & Dots' and 'Moroccan Screen' Cuttlebug folders), then sanded it to reveal the core colour...well actually I 'debossed' one as I keep forgetting that the new folders are the other way up! Doh! Finally I used my new distressing tool on all of the edges, and added a few Poppicrafts flowers.
