House Mouse Love Confetti




Happy Wednesday everyone :)

For my card today, I decided to enter the challenge over on the House Mouse & Friends weekly challenge blog. I just love these little House Mouse images and was so excited to learn of these weekly challenges. To participate, or to view the submissions, go here: http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/, or click on the icon on the right of my blog. This week's challenge was to use lace on our card.

For my card today, I stamped my House Mouse image onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with my copics. I put diamond Stickles on the hearts. I then used a Fiskars corner punch to get the hearts in the corners of the House Mouse image. I then created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Regal Rose cardstock (my last sheet of this, my favorite SU paper! I placed another order this morning :) ). I then layered on top of the card base SU's Close to Cocoa. I then used Fiskar's Threading Water punch on my designer paper from Basic Grey's Sugared collection. I placed my lacy ribbon from K&Co's Smitten collection around my card base, and then mounted my designer paper onto my card base.

I then mounted my House Mouse image onto SU's Regal Rose, followed by SU's Close to Cocoa and then mounted it onto my card base with dimensionals. I then stamped the sentiment, which is a $1 Studio G stamp, onto GP cardstock and punched it out with SU's 1 3/8 circle punch. I then used SU's scalloped circle punch and punched out the scalloped circle from SU's Regal Rose and Close to Cocoa and then placed the sentiment on my card base using dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added primas, centered with a pearl, in the top left corner of my card.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by.
