Oh, That Mouse!

It’s Stampendous Dreamweaver Thursday and we’re continuing the theme of Mousey Mischief!  This cute little House-Mouse® has been digging in the potted plant and knocked some dirt out!  It makes for a nice resting spot though!  LOL!  I just love these cute mice!  Here’s my card for today’s post:

Here’s what I used to create this card:

Stampendous® Dreamweaver Stencil LX 7014 Daisy Background
Stampendous® House-Mouse® Designs Potted Mouse

ColorBox® Primary & Soft Pastels Chalk Ink Pads
Light Blue Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®

Here’s what I did to create this card:

Tape stencil down on white paper and using sponge daubers, add inks
Remove stencil and trim to 5.25” x 4”, set aside
Stamp image with black ink on clean section of same white paper
Color with markers and trim closely as shown
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold from light blue cardstock
Cut a mat to fit stamped image from same light blue cardstock as base
Using a paper distresser, distress edges of stenciled piece, stamped image and mat for image
Slightly distress edges of card base randomly around the three open edges
Trim a piece of yellow ribbon to fit and adhere across stenciled piece as shown
Adhere stenciled piece to card base
Adhere stamped image to mat and then to card front
Using a small amount of glue, add a sprinkling of bronze glass glitter, shake off excess and set aside to dry

Here’s the list of my teammates playing along today:
