Caardvarks Core'dinations Challenge

Good morning everyone.  Today I am playing along with the Caardvarks weekly challenge.  The challenge is to create a "New" monochromatic card.  The sponsor to this challenge is Core'dinations.  This cardstock is awesome!!  It has a color core perfect for sanding.  It also comes in some amazing colors.  The color that I chose is called "Lake".
Each panel measures 1 1/2" x 4 3/4".  Next I embossed them with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder and sanded.  Having the color core adds lots of dimension to the cardstock once it is sanded. 

Isn't this duck & mouse so cute!!!  I colored them with Copic markers and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities.  My sentiment is from the "Romantic Sentiments" set by JustRite.  I thought this sentiment was perfect for this card because the cute little mouse is holding on to his ducky friend.  This would be a perfect friend card or even a significant other.
The 3 flowers in the upper left corner were made using my Cricut Expression and the Walk In My Garden cartridge.  Once I put them together I thought they kind of looked like lily pads which fit perfectly into my card theme.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  Don't forget that today is the last day to have a chance at my blog candy.  You can check it out here.
