Happy New Year

Hello everyone! It's great to be back as the new year has begun.....

I created this House Mouse card in Spanish that translates to "Happy New Year"... The image has been colored in with Glitter Gel markers and Sharpie Metallics. The mouse is twice stamped and popped with foam adhesive for dimension. The punched/embossed border was made with a MS punch. This shiny silver Ribbon was from taken from a fancy xmas giftbox --> (now that's what I call recycling) :) and then tied in center with SU silver cording. For extra bling, also added a piece of that same silver ribbon underneath the punched border. Also added silver brads to the end of each of her ribbons and drew in lines to make these seem as if they are moving. :)

This House Mouse image is of Monica from 1993, made by Stampabilities, #HMOR1012, called "Party Ribbons 'o2".
