Crafting for all Seasons DT Card

Hi everyone, this is my first DT card for the Crafting for all Seasons Challenge.  The challenge this time is:

Just choose a row, vertically, horizontally or diagonally and include those three items on your card or project

 Our sponsor for this challenge is The Stamping Boutique

and the prize will be…

3 digi stamps or 1 digital paper pack of your choice

We are also introducing something very special this time:

These beautiful images are drawn by Angelique Sliekje and they are absolutely gorgeous, but best of all they are all FREE.  Some of our DT, including me, have used her images to create their projects.   It was so difficult to choose an image from the fabulous selection available but eventually I chose the lovely image  -Mouse reading book

Isn't he just so cute.  I coloured him with a combination of ProMarkers and Spectrum Noir pens and teamed him up with some papers from The Paper Shelter.  The bingo line that I chose was buttons, die cut and tag - the flowers on the corrugated corners are buttons, both the border across the middle and the butterfly are die cut and the sentiment is printed on a little tag.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front

Image: Sliekje's Digital Stamps - Mouse reading book
Papers:  The Paper Shelter - Trattoria Chef
Tools:  Spellbinders Classic Squares (inside card) and Ric Rac Diamond Border, Die-namics Butterfly, CREAlies Tag
Embellishments: buttons, pearls, corrugated card and raffia from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

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

The Paper Shelter Challenge 28 - Die Cuts and Punches
