A Mouse Drops in

Yaaaaay! I've just seen that I was in the Top 3 at Stampin' Royalty last week, so I'm a bit happier than I was this morning.

To take my mind off things for a while, I made a card that I'll be entering into three challenges.

The first is The Paper Players with this sketch, 

second Color Throwdown  with these colours,

and lastly, Addicted to Stamps where they want us to

MAKE YOUR MARK and use marker pens

This is my card

I stamped the mice and butterfly in Archival ink on white card, and coloured them with SU Write Markers, softening the colour with an Aqua painter. I embossed some green card and wrapped it at the top with some CC card that had been punched along the edges, and some black ribbon. This was placed on a white card base and the animals put in place on 3D pads. The last thing was the stamped sentiment.

Supplies :
Card = Crumb Cake, Natural White, Green and base card FMS
Stamps = Cute Companions
Inks = Real Red, Handsome Hunter, Crumb Cake, and Black
Tools = Big Shot, Dots EF, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and Martha Stewart punch
Extras = Ribbon and 3D pads

Thanks for looking, and please call back again soon
