"Follow my Leader"

Todays card is another of the Penny Black images that Julie exchanged with me, this one I love with these little mice all carrying their balloons in a line.

Ive coloured the image with my Karisma pencils and have used some Diamond Glaze on the balloons to make them shine. Ive then used a pen around the edge and mounted it onto a piece of pale blue pearlescent card, Ive also written a line along the top of the card.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and on top of this I have used the pale blue pearlescent card with one of the Bearly Mine papers, I have used three designs from the Extreme Designs Cd.2 this time and I love these ones especially as they are so vibrant.

The other two mounts have been placed at a L shape and I stamped a greeting onto white card and punched it out with a bit of the blue card with one of the ribbon labels from Spellbinders, and threaded through a piece of blue grosgrain ribbon and stuck this to the bottom of the card. Ive then positioned the stamped mounted image onto the middle of the card, and placed several cat buttons down the edge on the left, and a meow button at the botton. The final thing is the little blue pearl gems that were stuck to the top and down the centre of the card.
