Three Little Mice enjoying themselves
Todays card has been created with another of the images that my friend Julie gave me, unfortunately I dont know what this one is actually called but I think the design is quite appropriate considering the hot weather that weve been enjoying the last few days.
Ive actually pinched the sketch layout from one of the blogs I found while bloghopping, so I hope you will forgive me. I have coloured the stamped image with my Karisma colouring pencils and cut it out with my rotatrim, then mounted it onto green card. I also stamped the greeting onto another piece of white card and mounted this in the same way as the stamped image.
The base card is a 8"x 8" one, and I have layered it up firstly with a piece of pale green card onto which I have layered a piece of paper from one of Joanna Sheen cds, the second layer half way down the card is a piece of yellow card punched along the top with one of my Martha Stewart border punches, on top of this is a piece of script paper from the Bearly Mine Design cds, on this I have stamped a flourish and embossed it with a green embossing powder.
I then stuck my stamped mounted image to the right hand side and the greeting above, I then stuck buttons in two of the corners and one on the greeting. I also found the wateringcan button in my box and thought it went well.
As the card looked rather bare on the top left hand corner, I made up some flowers from my Prima Hydrangea petals and threaded through the centre a pearl brad with a spacer, and hung an umbrella charm from the bottom flower. I then punched out some leaves again and arranged them under the flowers and stuck them onto the card with silicone glue.
