Resting up...

Hello again,
I know, 2 posts today, what's up with that? Well, I was so anxious to use this new Stampavie stamp that I bought from Hope Stamps Eternal (I actually got another mousie stamp too and I don't think that it will be too long without getting inked up ;)
This card is for the Card Patterns Sketch60, found here. Julia S. is offering up a very lovely prize! Good luck to all!
I stamped the image on white and coloured with Copic markers and then used a circle Nestability die to cut out. I stamped the image again on a Basic Grey Lemonade scrap from the 6 X 6 size and paper pieced the hammock. Cute lady bugs one. All the rest of the papers on this card are from the 12 X 12 Lemonade pack.
I added some buttermilk Spica pen on the daisy centers and the mousie eyelid and nose. It is obvious that mousie's whiskers are a little fault.
There is stitching around the circle, I am gaining a little more confidence on this little machine that I am using, but it is a totally different feel from my big ole Singer.

I have not added a sentiment yet to this little one, but I was thinking of using something like "Hope you are resting up and feeling better" Any suggestions?

Thanks for visiting!
