Guest Design at House Mouse Monday Challenge

Good morning! I was very excited to be invited to Guest Design for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, thank you so much ladies!

 I love these sweet stamps, some of mine are very old but they come out to play time and time again!
This fortnight's  challenge is  ' I can see right through you' - make a creation using vellum or an aperture.

  I made a tent fold card, I cut the front of it off, just leaving enough at the top to punch a daisy border. I cut 2 strpis from the remainder of the card front and reattached them using strips of vellum, -a very pretty sparkly vellum I've had for years! I used narrow strips of glitter card to cover the joins. The adorable little mousey is the first HM stamp I ever bought, a wood mounted one. She's still my favourite! I coloured with copics added loads of Wink of Stella to her tutu , fussy cut and placed her over the Vellum backed aperture. I just added a die cut sentiment and 3 sequins.
Apologies for the photo...I tried for ages to get one that showed the light through the vellum but this was the best I could get! It honestly looks much prettier IRL!
It would be brilliant if you choose to join the fun over at House Mouse and Friends, there are, as always some fabulous creations from the talented team to inspire you and some amazing prizes to be won! 
Thanks for visiting, have a lovely week.
