Quirky Mouse


Hi everyone! Are you having a 'mice' day?!? I'm excited to be back from our month long holiday break at the Doodle Pantry as is the rest of the design team and boy do we have some really amazing new release images to share with all of you. My card highlights the Quirky Mouse digital stamp just released by Doodle Pantry.


My card base is Dark Brown layered with White Cardstock then patterned paper. The shadow layer is Summer Sun embossed using the Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder layered on Dark Brown. The image and sentiment are printed on White Cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper, shadow layer and image using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. To embellish the card I added a dark brown satin bow and sunflower dew drops in each corner of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
