Sketch Saturday ~ House Mouse Wedding Card

OMGoodness!!! Im actually posting a card! For a challenge....just because! Not DT work or anything, just a card I made for my brother in law and new wife. Ive shocked myself!! And.....miracles never cease today, I even LIKE the darn thing! LOL Ok....here it is. Using this week's sketch at Sketch Saturday (which should JUST go to show you how long this card took me this week since Im BAREL?Y squeezing it in under the wire here.....yikes). And using my NEW favorite House Mouse stamp (think I have a new addiction)

Ok....I just love this image. I love lilacs and the mice are so cute...and I even love the vase. As I said above I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and these papers are from BoBunny ~ Peacock Lane. I made those little flowers up top with my little flower punch and Glimmer mists. I didn't have a purple mist so I sprayed them with JAzz Blue and bubble Gum pink and while the colour is a little darker than I might have really liked, they still came out pretty good I think. My cute mice and flowers are all colored with Copics. The inside of the card is....
 And it's also an easle card!! I love these.
Now I've also used some glossy accents on the vase to make it look more like glass. I love that technique.

anyhow, that's my card for the day week!! good greif. I really did start working on it on the weekend last and well....have SLOWLY and painfully worked on it here and there this week.

thank you so much for stopping by!!!
Cheers

Wow Cheri, this is awesome! Really nice and the colouring is stunning! Is this one big stamp or did you us more stamps! Well done girl, your brother in law will be so pleased! Nice weekend, tomorrow the neighboors are coming back from their holiday, guess who will be on the doorstep as soon as they have one foot out of the car!
Hugs Gemma
