Fortune Cookies

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight it's my turn to host and I have chosen the theme: Lots of Layers - no surprise there then!

You could use decoupage for your layers like me, or just layers of paper and card stock, the choice is yours but don't forget you must use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image to join in.

For my card I've used a fabulous decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Food and Drink collection and papers from Pink Petticoat.

I have used Kraft card stock, burlap ribbon and burlap flowers from my local Craft Shop, I'm going to have to go back and get some more of these!  The sentiment is from the decoupage sheet and the button and twine are from my stash.

This challenge is being sponsored by:

Who are offering one Lucky Player a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of some of these Premium Dye Ink Pads


who are offering a surprise package of embellishments worth $15.00
(Due to increased postage costs the winner for this prize must reside in the USA)

I am also offering this adorable stamp set to a further lucky winner

So come and join us, you could win one of these fabulous prizes.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday Challenge -  Monochrome
ABC Challenge - M is for Monochromatic
Little Red Wagon Challenge 240 - Food
613 Avenue Create Challenge 75  - Anything Goes/Best Friends Day
