House Mouse Monday Challenge Card

Hey Friends! Wow, a second post for the day. I've been doing that a lot lately and will need to do at least two post a day for the next week or so. Lot's of stuff going on in blogland so one post a day is no longer sufficient. I actually have another card waiting in the wings but I'll post it tomorrow!!

I've been wanting to participate in the House Mouse Monday Challenge for a while but I had other commitments that I needed to work on. Well, I found the time to squeeze in a card for their challenge this week!


I love House Mouse images.. .they are one of the most detailed stamps out there. You can't go wrong with a HM image. The background is already drawn so with the stamp alone, you can create a card and it'll still look pretty!

I decided to color my image with my Copic Markers. . .I added a bit of SU Crystal effects to the grass and leaves. I also added Stickles to the flowers.

I had a fun time creating this card.


Anyway, not much to chit-chat about right now. . .

I need to get back and create another card. Hope you all have a wonderful evening!






Card Details:

Stamps: House Mouse, The Paper Company Studio
Paper: DCWV & K&Co designer paper, SU Lavender Lace, Lovely Lilac (I think), Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Grosgrain ribbon, JoAnn brads, Martha Steward Border Punch, SU Scallop Edge Punch, Stickles, SU Crystal Effects
