It's No Coloring for HMFMC176, and Sue Wilson 2014 Christmas Dies Launch

Happy Monday.  Have you entered our current challenge HMFMC176,  over at; House-Mouse & Friends?  If not, there's still time (ends Aug 23rd), so enter for your chance to win some crazy fabulous prizes!! The theme was chosen by me; Eeeek!  It's a NO COLORING Challenge, with an option of creating on a Thinking Of you or Get-Well card. Of course you must also be using HMD's House-Mouse, Gruffies and, or Happy Hoppers stamps.   :)

Our Mousey Design Team is dedicating our creations to our lovely Teamies, Sue Drees, and Sue Kment, who are both going through a difficult time in life and so we wanted to let them know that we are thinking of them and their loved ones.  :) "YOU ARE IN MY THOUGHTS" is my 2nd card for this theme. I followed the same idea of using multiple images, like with my last card, (found HERE), but changed the elements for a slightly different look and style. What do you think?


Main Background was created by stamping lots of little mice, cheese and foot-prints on various shades of gray and white, then punched out multiple times with a diamond punch. These diamonds were then adhered onto white CS side by side. The piece was then cut to even out sides and strips of black CS were layered across all the diamonds to create this trellis look. Its then mounted on black CS and placed over a piece of frilled paper cut out with special frill scissors for the look. The finishing touches added are the glitter around borders and pearls placed on all areas where diamonds meet.  The lovely flower is actually made with Sue Wilson's multiple Daisy Dies (see below). Some petals are open and others had the edges trimmed (for creating a slightly different and fuller flower look) and then topped with a pearl.
