Joanna Sheen Challenge - mid way reminder

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are having a good weekend.

I have 2 posts today so I will get straight onto my first one which is a reminder of the 
Joanna Sheen Challenge which is running to the end of the the month.
The theme is
Make it Sparkle
The Prize for the lucky winner is a wonderful £30 voucher to spend online at Joanna Sheen.

PLEASE NOTE, THERE IS ALSO AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE CHALLENGE BLOG. This is the last Joanna Sheen challenge as the decision has been made to close it down. As you can imagine the DT are very sad about this. Not only did we love being part of such a fabulous team we know how much you enjoyed taking part.

Anyway, onto my card.
I have used a cute House Mouse stamp. There is lots of sparkle on the branches and flowers, I am not sure if you can see it too well on my rubbish photo.
The flowers are made from felt cut with Cheery Lynn Rose dies.  I stitched them together rather than using glue, they do look quite pretty in real life.

Items Used;
Stamp - House Mouse Winter Candle coloured with Promarkers.
Papers - Dovecraft Vintage Christmas and magazine freebies.
Dies - Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish
Cheery Lynn Holly Corner
Cheery Lynn Medium and Large Rose
Imagination Crafts Detail Sparkle - White Shimmer
Glamour Dust - Crystal
Sentiment - Craftwork cards

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Cheery Lynn Designs - Sparkle and Shine ( unfortunately it doesn't show up too well on my card!)

I hope lots of you will be able to take part in what will be our last challenge!

Thank you for stopping by, I will be back later.
Bye for now

You must have used LOADS of glitter to make all the snow on this card! It's beautifully done, and I like those little pine cone embellishments as well, they go well with this image with the mouse in the tree! It's so sweet!

Sorry to hear that about the JS challenge blog. Money seems to be very tight right now for craft suppliers in particular. I guess that peeps haven't got the money to spare right now, I know that I don't have the spare cash I used to so I'm very particular about what I buy now xx
