Sniff – House Mouse Challenge 27 - Chipboard

after making my entry for the WOJ challenge I decided I really liked the flowers I did in the corner for that card and that I would make a card with a flower arrangement. THEN I saw the new House Mouse challenge that required chipboard to be used, “Ooo” I thought “I’ve got some of that”, then I went over to Larissa’s blog and saw she had made a card with a little House Mouse image I had sent her, and I thought “Ooo I really like that”. SOOooo the upshot was I made a card incorporating those three ideas, and here it is…

From the base up –
1. Baby pink Stardream pearlescent card.
2. K & Co Bordeaux Floral Flat paper
3. Stardream pearlescent “Fairway” green card used to make the scalloped oval, which is the largest of the large petite scalloped Nestabilities. The inner oval was cut using the second largest of the large Nestabilities. The House Mouse image is called “Please” . It’s so tiny, from bottom to nose it’s 2cm high. This was coloured in with my trusty Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Sansodor, and his little nose has a spot of Sakura Gelly Roll clear glaze. The flowers are from Prima – Forever Flowers No.3 Passion and pearl brads were used in the centres. The leaves where made using Martha Stewart’s Branch punch and two different green Bazzil card stock.
4. The chipboard swirl/flourish is from Maya Road – Scrolls II. This was inked with a white inkpad and double heat embossed with Moon Glow two-toned EP “Oak leaf Olive Gold”.
5. Corners was made with a Cuttlebug die and light green Bazzil card stock and then finished of with some green satin ribbon and a bit of bling in the corners.
I’ve just realised my last 3 cards have been pink, I think it’s grown on me :o) For my next card I will endeavour to use a different colour… but I can’t promise.
Take care & keep smiling

Hi Ann

Wow this is sooooo cute! You can hardly see the mouse, but it is so darn cute! I love how he is reaching for the flowers! Really great card!
I don't have any chipboard (can you believe it? :):):):) ), so I hope I can find a solution, because I really want to play. I have so many sweet images now. I will be shopping for groceries this friday and maybe I can go the the craft store as well and find some chipboard or maybe I can think of something else.

Take care!
