Blessed Mouse


Our newest character at My Favorite Things is back again this month - this time, Mouse in the House is a Blessed Mouse! Generally I choose my papers for each card first, then colour to match. Sometimes I feel like just colouring though, and match papers from my scrap box after colouring, as I have here.


I started this card with a 3.5 x 5.5 card base (I use this size a lot - it's the leftover strip when cutting a 5x5" card). The largest Traditional Tags STAX was very close in size, so I ended up trimming my card base to make a large tag shaped card.

I used mostly pastel colours, adding pop with the bright blue and black. Mouse is stamped on a layer cut with the new Designer Labels 2 STAX. The ribbon is Blue Raspberry.


I kept the inside super simple with a watermark image and a sentiment.
