Have a Mice Day

Todays card is another of the lovely swop images that I got from Julie, this one is another of the Penny Black designs, I not sure what its called but its definately a lovely design of two little mice doing some sewing.

Anyway I coloured the design with my Faber-Castell pencils and cut it out with my Spellbinder Square dies, and cut another for the mount out of blue pearlescent card with the Scalloped one. The greeting is another of my Just-Rite circle stamps and the mount was also cut out with the smaller scalloped circle die.

The base card is 8"x 8" white card, then for the first layer I have used the pale blue pearlescent card onto which I have layered up one of the patterned papers from Pocket full of Posies Stack by DCWV, the second layer is a piece of blue pearlescent paper which I have used one of my Martha Stewart border punches along both sides. The third layer is another of the papers from the same stack and this was also stuck on a piece of blue pearlescent card, and with a blue gingham ribbon stuck around the centre, has been then stuck on top of the punched paper.

I have then stuck the mounted stamped image on top of this in the centre with some foam tape, and the greeting was stuck to the bottom to the right hand side. To finish of the card I have made up a flower from my Stash and hung a cat charm from the brad in the centre. Before sticking it to the card I punched out some leaves and then arranged them in some silicone and then stuck the flower on top.
