YOU ROCK!, House-Mouse Challenge HMFMC190

A "YOU ROCK" card featuring many sweet mice playing instruments...
I created this fun card for the House-Mouse and Friends Challenge # HMFMC190- (which by the way, is being hosted by yours truly), and Ive chosen to go to with an Anything Goes theme with option to CASE the card below.  Ive had this idea forever and thought it would be so much fun to see this layout and parts of multiple images on others projects. I cant wait to see your takes and hope you will give it a try! It's not only fun, but it's also a great way to use up lots of stamps that otherwise never get to see daylight! LOL! :)

Having a card to follow was really great because this new card came together rather quickly. The toughest part was choosing what theme to go with. I had put out Easter stamps, then some mousey Floral themed stamps, then a set of get wells, then musical stamps.... ayayay -so many options here! LOL   In the end, it was my kids that helped me to decide on which set of stamps to use and they all chose the musical for a "You Rock" theme. heheh :)  Great Kids!

Stamps Used:   Stampabilities & Stampa Rosa; "Mice Symphony", "Mice Tro", "sweet Music", "Candlelight Chorus", "You Rock" sentiment.
Papers: White CS, MM Blue CS, Black CS, Musical Notes DPs
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copics 
Accessories: Creative Expressions/Sue Wilson Pierced Flag Die, Spellbinders Circle Dies, Creative Memories Circle Punches, Circle Bling, Adhesive Silver Pearls, Adhesive Rhinestones, Ribbon, Chalkboard Button 
 Festive Collection
Here is the CARD TO CASE...

Cute, cute, cute! I adore your card and how you used different parts of the HM on each circle. These remind me of bottlecaps, but much classier looking. The music background paper...absolutely perfect. GREAT card! Thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ this month and hope you'll join again so I can follow your art work! Hugs, Gail
