House Mouse Monday Challenge #23 - Valentine's

Our DT challenge this week was :~ Valentines.

I used the new MS border HEARTS Punch, a new lace corner punch & thick handmade papers on this one. I posted 2 separate pictures for you to be able to see the details of that awesome textured paper.

The glass candy bowl is also colored in with glitter gel markers for sparkle, but because of the angles of these pictures and the lighting, its not really visible here. The candy hearts and mice were colored in with All Night Media & CTMH chalks then sprayed with hairspray. The BG is also chalked with cottonballs. Piercing and doodling finish off my card.

The name of this Valentine stamp is: "Lovin' Mousefull", featuring (Mudpie & Amanda), #464J, House Mouse Designs by Stampa Rosa, Year 2000.

'You can make anything what-so-ever as long as you use at least one House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies stamp and it fits the Valentines theme.' So why dont you come play along and join us? You may post your HM card-link here: http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/
Thanks so much for looking & Happy Monday!
