Time for Coffee

Hi - glad to say that my daughter is home from hospital  - some pain but onwards and upwards from here. Had time to finsih a card I started last week with the adoreable Housemouses on.

I decoupaged the cute mice playing with the coffee beans and curled the edges to give the image lift. I used pinflair glue to fix the layers together.

I used backing papers from The Canterbury Collection by Kaban - they are such good quality. Down the right I added some chipboard buttons tied with some glitteryblue ribbon.On the left I used some gorgeous blue lace, some blue flowers and two heart pins to which I added some silver beads. The sentiment is from Hunkydory - jewelled elegance collection. I backed this with a circle cut from a spellbinders circle die.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -
