Terrific Techniques Wk 2 Masquerades as a Waltzing Mouse Sketch

I had actually decided that I didn’t have time to make a card for the Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge as I still have three weeks of the My Creative Classroom exercises to complete before next Thursday (when the lessons are no longer "live"). However, I've been experimenting with my new Tim Holtz Mask which arrived yesterday &, as I was embellishing & mounting my completed exercises, I remembered a piece of lime green spotted ribbon & the Waltzing Mouse Sketch. So..... I thought a little….. & a few hours later…. after fiddling a little (with a few punches, the Cuttlebug, ribbon, pearls, inks...... OK I admit after quite a bit of fiddling, including rotating the sketch 90 degrees clockwise & thinking my way around embossing the cardstock so as to cover an area larger than would fit through the Cuttlebug in one go).
