This is my second creation for House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge as a Guest, the theme is "Embossing dry or powder". I decided to go with dry embossing using an embossing folder. I adore this image and it was a joy to colour. It is called "Alterations Sew & Go", I used buttons and thread as embellishments.
