Cheerful Get Well Card!

Well I think it is lol! I made this card for my friend's husband who has just had a wee operation. I meant to have made it in time to give it to her for him when we went to the car treasure hunt on Friday. Didn't happen! I've posted it now so I hope I can remember what I used.

I 3D'd the little mice but I don't know if you can see that on the second pic. I even threaded the buttons which was not a lot of fun as they're so small but I was scared in case Kath saw naked buttons on my blog lol!

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Sentiment :- Hero Arts.
DP :- Basic Grey - White Paper.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Stampin' Up! punch, buttons from stash, faux stitching with American Crafts pen.

I'm entering the following challenges :-
Penny Black :- Pesky Critters!
Cupcake :- Sketch.
Secret Crafter :- Something from around the house - typewriter.
Creative Inspirations challenge :- Stitching.
Cards for Men :- Stars.

I'm not really very impressed with this card. I think I thought too much about it and it looked better in my head! Sometimes I get on better when I haven't much time.

I'm off to enter these challenges and then see if I can get some DT work done.

Thanks for looking and feel free to tell me what you think. You can be honest with me, I promise I won't cry!
