I don't know what happens to me with this Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges, but I always come up with something that surprises me. I had no idea where this House Mouse Stamp ~Thanks so much Stacy -twinshappy- for sending me this image~ was going to take me, but I decided I wanted to use this for the current MM Sketch found here:
You should really try out their sketches as they are lots of fun and you could win prizes too!!
I wanted to make another card for one of my friends from church dealing with the aftermath of breast cancer and I thought this cute image along with the sentiment were perfect together.
I used 2 Bo Bunny Patterned Papers for the card. I added the circles, per the sketch, to the upper and lower parts of the image, some pretty pink fiber ribbon with a pearl ribbon slide ~ Thanks to Lovely Linda for sending me those gorgoeus pearl slides ~ some sparkly pink brads, pearls, rhinestone, flower and some stickles on the circluar mats and dazzling diamonds on the pink flower. I colored the mice with markers, added dazzling diamonds to the pink flower, which you probably can't see in the photo, and outlined the outer sides of the mice for a shadow effect with a blue to match the paper. Paper pierced the image, matted it on a rectangular scallop nestie and embossed the circles and strip of paper with the stylized flower ef.
I think that about does it. Hope you enjoy the card. If you have a quick moment, let me know what you think!

Pamz, this House-Mouse from Twinshappy is toooo cute. I see you are doing shadow effects now and they really look good. Love the pearl ribbon slide from Lovely Linda and it looks great with the pink fiber. I do see those dazzling diamonds on the flower. Very pretty dp and a wonderful creation!

Another pretty piece of perfection from Pam's prolific gallery... Just wonderful - you are rockin' those sketches girl! I'm such a House Mouse fan too - can't stand the live version but in stamps they're just so cute. I've been laying low this week and staying off the computer as much as I can - arm in a sling all week trying to heal a serious case of 'tennis elbow'. I can only imagine how much it would hurt if I actually played tennis! Nice to find this little gem in your gallery...

Pam this is just as sweet and adorable as it can be. What a treat to feast my eyes upon this wonderfully colored and nicely embellished card. Your dp is beautiful and really compliments your image. What a delightful card. You never disappoint with your eye for style and your charming way of putting things together. Thanks for playing again with us this week. We appreciate your support.
