House Mouse Challenge #15 - POLKA DOTS

My second House Mouse Challenge.....I had to forget the holidays because my imagination was heading elsewhere. For this card I used a 1998 House Mouse Stamp called Wrapped and Ready. I see it on the website now with a colored Stampabilities version - mine is an older version from a different supplier with just black ink. I colored the mice with Copics and added a picture of the copics that I used below. I'm a newbie with Copics and I think this card is my best so far with blending colors on the mouse fur. All of the card stock and designer series paper is Stampin' Up. The sentiment stamp "Happy Birthday and the punch is Stampin' Up. I used STICKLES in Diamond for the bows on top. My first time using Stickles...loved them! The flowers, brad, ribbon, Martha Stewart Star Punch - all from Michaels. I didn't have the easiest time photographing this card - I decided to use the version with my flash off :-). I have to keep working on the best settings of the photographs.....

Deb, I am new to the group and in the process of a move so have not made any cards yet, but oh am I enjoying looking at all of them. This one is very, very sweet. After I view a blog, I write down what was used, so I can go research it, to find out what it is! I will learn!
