A place where no rules apply, and fingers get inky and stained!!

I have been dying (haha!!) to play with these Waltzing mouse Stamps since they landed on my doormat the other day, but work and children got in the way!!  However I have had a play this afternoon.

I inked the baubles up in Cranberry ink and then cut them out using my bauble nesties.  The edges if the cardstock has been distressed and I added gold embossing powder to the cream cardstock and heat embossed it.  I stamped the sentiment from the sme stamp set and cut and mat it using my nestie tags.  Green organza ribbon and fancy braid for the baubles finish it off.  The baubles are popped up using foam pads.
