Cute Mouse

Hi everyone and happy sunday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It's been pretty chilly here in Illinois this weekend so we didn't spent much time outside. That gave me a chance to work on a couple of cards. The one below I actually worked on for quite some time, glad I finally got it finished.

The image is another cutie I got from MelJen Designs. It has been printed out with my HP inkjet printer on some type of copic paper, then heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I had so much fun coloring it!!


Papers are from my stash, card base is riding hood red from SU. I made the flowers using some punches and buttons and sizzix leaves die. I applied some stickles to the flowers on the image and flower centers on the designer paper. Did some stitching too. The sentiment is from SU (warm words).

I used a sketch from last week's Stamp with Fun challenge but it is too late to enter my card to that challenge.

The card also fits some other challenges:
A spoon full of sugar (theme: furry friends)
Color Dare (color theme: Breezy pumpkin red kisses -colors below)


Totally Papercrafts (theme: stitching)
Pile it on (theme: cute and cuddly)

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog! I hope you liked the card. I have another cute one scheduled for tuesday so be sure to come back to check it out.
