Anything Goes Challenge- Shabby chic/vintage

Hi everyone! It's Tuesday so that means a new challenge over at Anything Goes Challenge blog. The challenge this week is shabby chic/vintage. I know this is a look we all like to create so we're hoping to see lots of lovely entries! We also have our new members of the design team so do pop over and see all the DT samples.

I wanted to make another card for my Christmas stash and decided to go for something fairly simple as I wanted to image to be the total focus.

I used this cute House Mouse stamp (you can buy your House Mouse stash from Lynne at The Craft Den) which I won in a challenge and coloured with usual watercolour/lyra/copic combo. I then used my Tim Holtz distressing tool to distress the image and the mount. Paper is by Dasher Basic Grey. Sentiment is Elzybells (I miss Elzybells!) Lace I won in a blog candy ages ago.

I'd like to enter this into:
Stamp with Stampavie- Christmas in Summer
Divas by Design- Christmas
Charisma Cardz- anything goes
Basic Grey- celebration
Sweet Stampin- anything but birthday card
Stamptacular Sunday- anything goes
Kaboodle Doodles- use lace/fabric/ricrac

Colouring close up! Don't they look all snuggly?!

Craft stash used: Stamps (House Mouse, Elzybells); Watercolour & lyra pencils; Copics; Paper (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Lace; Pearls (Wild Orchid Crafts)
