an oldie but a goodie

This is one of the first House Mouse stamps that I bought about 5 years ago. I used it to create this card for 3 challenges

House Mouse Challenge #42-you gotta have friendship
An Oldie but a Goodie #5-distressing
Stamptacular Sunday #84-DT Inspiration-I used the sketch by Cheri

All of the stamps are Stampabilities. I colored the image with Copic markers. I distressed the papers by sponging brown ink on the edges. I ran the blue panel through the Cuttlebug folder Alegro and sponged it with brown ink also. I added the brown strips and dark pearls. Hope that everyone is having a great week and thanks for stopping by!
