For my card I’ve used the totally adorable Mouse In Tea Cup (Cecil) and coloured him with ProMarkers with added white gel pen highlights.To add a little shading under and on the cup I used the Tea Green ProMarker and Blender.I find this gives a softer more subtle colour than using a grey. For a little extra shine I went over the tea cup with a glaze pen.Here’s a close up to show the detail :

I actually tuned the sketch on it’s side so I could incorperate the eyelets onto the edge of the image piece.I chose a gingham background and lacy edged dies to got with the country feel of the image.

Here are the new release  Mother’s Day special images :

For my card I’ve used the rather adorableMother’s Day Special Boy in the Pot from Ai Factory.But any of the images would look fabulous.I’ve coloured him with Promarkers and added Glamour Dust to the flowers.The two die cut circles have also been edged with it and I’ve dotted the middle of the flower brad too.I picked up these gorgeous Ooh La La For Her papers from my local craft warehouse for the bargain price of £3.99!They’re double sided and come with a coordinating accessory sheet.I tried to show this by turnng back one corner and pining it in place with a brad.This is also my first attempt at doing one of these bows with the twirly tails.

Here’s a closer look at all the pretty sparkle :
