House Mouse Wedding Stepper

 

Hello,
This is my first ever stepper card. I was recently looking through all of our house mouse decoupage sheets and came up with using the wedding couple as my main focal point by cutting them out, rather than keeping the whole topper, and decoupaging them up.
I used wild rose studio papers, matted on white. I created the heart by printing a sentiment and die cutting it in a heart shape.
I added flowers and pearls to finish.

Wake up and Be Fabulous


 

Hello,
Today I have a house mouse hidden message card to share, all inspired by the sentiment. I fancied making something a bit fancier after making quite a few simple cards over the last few months.
