Junk Draw House Mouse Challenge

The challenge over at House Mouse Monday was to use something from your junk draw. I had just cleaned my junk draw out! It's totally organized and everything was put back in it's place. So I had to rumage through another draw in my butler pantry. I found a set of coasters and decided to use that. The coaster is behind the scalloped image.
I colored the image with copic markers and used Tim Holtz distress ink on the edge of the image.
I used my new Martha Stewart branch punch (I saw this used on a card on a blog Going Buggy and had to have it...Thanks Enfys!) and bordered the coaster with all the punched out branches. I added some May Arts Polka Dot ribbon, a bow and a charm to complete my card.
Thanks for stopping by!

You know, I haven't seen this image used in forever. Then I used it on our anniversary card, and this is the third time I've seen it on a blog since then! LOL! Maybe I just wasn't paying attention before? Either way, I LOVE IT! Look at all that ribbon! *drools* :)
