Hanging on

Now for a break from the Christmas cards over on Everybody Art Challenge is a Monochromo card using Brown.
I love how this card turned out, things weren't working out so I was playing with the Martha Stewart Cherish  punches to see how much space was inside a rectangle. To start with it was too long even for a tall card and I didn't line up the bottom that well. When I saw how good the PB mice looked inside I chopped off the bottom of the mat and used a ribbon so it looks like it was done on purpose not.
The papers are scraps, the flowers and sentiment are from Hero Arts.
Do check out the rest of team and we have a fab prize this week.
Hubby has another day off, for some more Christmas Shopping hopefully we will be more successful than one present.
