My SIL's birthday is next week and she is a knitting wonder! Sabrina's Ways to Use It challenge, Knit Witwas perfectly timed and themed. I didn't include any wit, but I do have some knitting.
I embossed a stash shaving cream bg for a variegated yarn look. Stamped and colored the House Mouse image to coordinate with the panel. Dyed a piece of pink/white bakers twine to match and made a mini pom pom. Embossed a royal blue panel and layered them all on a white linen cardbase. Added the sentiment to complete. TFL

The shaving-foam background was a lovely inspiration for the variegated yarn those mice are knitting with. And you really went the extra mile creating a matching pompom too. What a special card for your SIL.

Your coloring on the yarn is absolutely perfect for the tied yarn ball Carla. I nearly used the same image but then I looked over at my stash and said nope...I need to use up some items. Terrific card for the challenge.

Love, love, love the variegated colors you created on this darling House Mouse card. The knitted embossed panel using a shaving cream panel is a brilliant idea - love the look of it. What knocks my socks off, is how you mimicked the variegated colors in the stamped design. Masterfully done!!!!! A++!
