Penny Black Saturday Challenge - One for the Girlies

This week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, our theme is:

'One for the Girlies'

And, we have not one, but two fabby sponsors:

15% off lifetime discount voucher for the PB Stamps Store


Four rolls of gorgeous ribbon (of the winner's choice) from Fantastic Ribbons!

For my card, I used an adorable mouse image from the 'Micey Day' set, which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Hopscotch' pad, and I distressed the edges (using scissors as I still can't find my distressing tool!), before adding faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the Hero Arts 'Anytime Messages' set, the flowers & pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the brads are by BasicGrey.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
