Ornaments of Joy, HMFMC181

Hello Blogging Friends.  Hope this Fall is treating you beautifully.
I have had a crazy month but finally found some time to create another Christmas card. (though I must find time to make some of my fave Halloween ones too!) :)

This next card was created for the current House-Mouse and Friends MC challenge #HMFMC181, over at HMFMC. The theme is White on White, and it was chosen by our fabulously talented Teamie, Kelly Smith.  This is my WHITE on WHITE take:
This white shimmery mousey card actually sparkles so much better than the picture shows. I have used the Stampendous! House-Mouse Designs Cling Stamp called "Candy Joy" and separated the three mice into sections for the three ornaments above. The ornaments were multi die-cut and layered. They are outlined with Stickles Glitter Glue and Martha Stewart Ultra-fine White Glitters.  I added rows of adhesive pearls above the baubles to look like they are hanging. The word Joy finishes off the look.

CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: Stampendous!, House-Mouse Designs, 

Cling Stamp called "Candy Joy"


Paper: The Paper Company/Colorbok, Shimmery Whites CS
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Creative Expressions Festive Collection Sentimental Bauble Craft Dies by Sue Wilson, EK Success Border Punch, Stampin' Up! Oval Punch, Diamond Stickles, MS Glitter, Pearl String, Adhesive Pearls
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Layering
