Three dotty mice.

Just a quick entry today.

I saw the challenge over at Stamping Royalty yesterday for a single layered card, and mulled it over overnight.

It did not take much to come up with this card as I had been thinking about using this image of the mouse in a line of three, as the card is for a three year old.

I ran the base through the cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot folder, but leaving the image area flat. Stamped these adorable Layers Of Color polka-dot mice in black, and coloured them using my Stampin' Up pencils, then blended the colours with a brush and water.

I was going to use rhinestones for the dots, but decided against it in favour of silver glitter - which needless to say went for miles, as glitter does.  But the effect is fabulous - I finished the berries off with a touch of Kindy Glitz on the leaves.

Here is a close up of it to show how glittery it all is.

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Stem Saying set, and was stamped in red and clear embossed.

The ribbon up the side was the final touch, and matched the other reds beautifully and tied it all together.

A simple card that was a pleasure to make - I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Thanks for calling by - I appreciate you letting me know you have called by, and I do love your comments.
