House mouse 100:th challenge celebration

















It's been a while since I played with all the other stamps I have in my stash. I have really missed doing that and entering challenges. During the last few months I've been focusing on my other crafts, but now I feel like I'm slowly coming back. And I'm having a blast.

Today's card is mainly for the house mouse challenge blog. These mice were among the first stamps I fell inlove with, but they were sooo expensive to get here in Sweden. I remember getting my first internet order from the US. Owning my first house mice...I think the love for cute images started right there and then. How could you not love these?

















I was very pleased with the card I made yesterday and wanted to continue on the summery feel. Pink/green together with a cute image and butterflies, you just can't go wrong. I used my sewing machine around the edges of the image and pink card and to make a swirl looking like the butterfly's trail. I went over with a glittery pen along those dots and on the flower.


















Challenges:

Basic Grey - sketch (I used patterned papers from the urban prairie line)
Everybody art - dots (from the sewing machine trail)
House mouse - buttons, bows and bling
Papertake weekly - getting cute
Stampavie and more - birthday
Stamp and create - ribbons and bows
Stampin for the weekend - animals with 4 legs
