Swiss Ribbon

I had a little play at the weekend with some of the lovely goodies I won recently...and made a Christmas card using some of the yummy Dovecraft 'Christmas Fancy' papers. The image is a House Mouse stamp called 'Swiss Ribbons', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I distressed the edges with ink and my scissors, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen, and a few adhesive gems.
