Third, getting down to business with this first card for this week's House Mouse Challenge #45. We were to create with a **Seasons** theme. I chose a BEACH theme for my favorite Season of all --> SUMMER.....
Lots of details went into this card - that 'Muzzy the Mouse' almost got lost in this scene, but...I just couldnt stop adding seashells & starfish & all those beach goodies..... LOL
The stamp used here is by Stampabilities, HMD "Keeping Cool", #HMLR1007. I cut out the mouse & beach umbrella, leaving out the remainder of the image, (which was the lemonade drink & ice cube), to add seashells. Image is colored with Copics. Seashells & Starfish were punched with "Emaginations" brand punches then ran through the CB folders for added texture. That awesome BG DP was actually gift from a generous stamper whom I purchased stamps from-so I dont know the brand name. The Solid Glitter Cardstock is from DCWV. Jolee's Boutique stickers, SU corner punches & twine finish off this card.
Go check out what awesome cards the rest of our House Mouse DT has created this week at HM&F!
Thanks for looking!
