How Sweet

Good evening everyone,

My card for today is serving double duty :) I decided to participate in the House Mouse & Friends Challenge again this week. For this week's challenge, we had to create our card based on a sketch. You can see the sketch and the other submissions here: or just click on the icon on the right hand side of my blog. As I was making my card, I decided to cut up a piece of K&Co. designer paper I've been saving for a long time and use it on the card. When I was on Splitcoast today, I noticed that the Way to Use it Challenge was to use specialty paper we have been saving. I have been saving this K&Co. paper for so long so I figured that this card fit in to the Way to Use it Challenge as well.

I first stamped the house mouse image onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and then colored it in with my copic markers. I added glitter to the sugar cubes using a Sakura glitter pen. Next, I created my card base out of SU's Certainly Celery cardstock (it measurs 5 1/2 by 5 1/2). I then layered my K&Co. designer paper on top of that followed by a small piece of SU's Pretty in Pink. I then layered my house mouse image onto Certainly Celery and adhered it to my card base using dimensionals. I placed pearls in all the corners and placed pink dew drops from Michael's on the Pretty in Pink cardstock. I stamped the sentiment, which is a $1 Studio G stamp from Michael's, onto Certainly Celery and mounted that onto Pretty in Pink. I then adhered the sentiment to the card base using dimensionals. Fianlly, I placed primas in the upper right hand corner.

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