I'm hooked on blues and greens!

Good Morning! Yes, it's still morning here! :) I made this card last night and I have to say, I just love these little mice. I was talking to my mom on the phone yesterday and she said that she loves them too. She also said, "Well, you know I love all your cards, but sometimes some of them just jump out at me. Those little mice cards do." Can you get any more support than that? I love you Mom!!!

I'm stuck on the blues and greens!! I just love them. This card started with a bazzill cardstock base and then I used October Afternoon's Hometown collection of paper. Again, they are all double-sided, which you know I love! But, on this card, I used 3 different pieces, Woolsworths is the floral, KM Building is the background lined paper, and County Library is the one with leaves. I stamped Mudpie (the House Mouse) onto cream colored paper with Memento black ink and colored him with Copics. I added glitter and some doodling along with inking the edges and attached him to some green Bazzill Bling. Then I added the flowers and ribbon with a brad. I did decorate the inside a bit with the same papers.

The sketch I used is from www.fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com and I used sketch #32.
