House Mouse Multiple Circles

  

Hello,
I'm back today to share my second card for the House mouse challenge which this fortnight was anything goes or multiple images. As I mentioned in my last post featuring my first card for this challenge, this really inspired me to search my stamps. I've really enjoyed using more than one image.
I used two of my favourites on this card, the first being part of the image from the stamp, flower arranging and the second being this little cutie, Mudpie holding a flower. This is only a small image but it has always been a favourite.
I coloured them both with Promarkers.
I used my favourite circle dies, matting them on orange.
The paper came from a magazine freebie and is actually embossed with the folder that came with it but that isn't very visable on the photo.
I finished with one of the mousy sentiments and added some pink twine.

I hope you've enjoyed my mousy make!

House Mouse Birthday Wishes

 

Hello,
The challenge at House mouse and friends this fortnight is use multiple images, something I don't always think to do yet have plenty of images that can be mixed and matched together. This theme inspired me and I got to finding out stamps that would go together straight away.
I created this birthday card using one of my favourite larger images, mice with cupcake (and a full belly!). Then used two of the smaller birthday themed stamps, coloured with Promarkers.
 Nearly all my favourite House mouse images include one of the mice with cake so I had to make a birthday card featuring one of my favourites.
The paper, matted on Brown, came from a 8x8 paper pad from The Works. I added ribbon, a bow and a sentiment to finish.
