In a Nutshell

I've used another prize on today's card...I won Kat's candy a couple of weeks ago...which was an adorable House Mouse stamp called 'Ina Nutshell'...so cute! And when the package arrived , there was also lots of lovely buttons and ribbons...and a gorgeous Craftwork Cards paper pad called 'Vintage Roses'...I've used some of that on this card too! Thanks Kat...I'm going to have lots of fun with those goodies! :0)
Anyway, I stamped the image in grey ink...just trying it out for a softer look...then coloured it using watercolour pencils. I distressed the edges of the papers, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen.
