Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #41

This is the first time I've participated in Taylor's Sketch Challenge. I really had fun making this card. It's going to be mailed to a very special person. She reads my blog but I'm not naming her so hopefully she'll be pleasantly surprised when she gets it.

I picked up this House Mouse stamp months ago and forgot I had it!! It's a pretty old stamp...but it still inks up nicely! I have a lot to learn about coloring these images. I'm happy with how the card turned out.

Here's the sketch...



This is my card:



Supplies Used:

Image: House Mouse
Paper: Stampin Up Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi; stamped on PTI Stampers Select.
Designer paper is Basic Grey Urban Prairie.
Ink: Ranger Archival, Stazon and Handsome Hunter
Accessories: Rectangle Nestabilites, Ribbon, Baubles, Copic Markers, Fiskars Threading Water Punch, corner rounder.

Tomorrow I will be spending the day with my family. My Aunt and Uncle are celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary! They are renewing their vows and then having a reception afterwards. I am looking forward to sharing this special day with them and my cousins and other family I don't get to see near enough. I hope you all have a great weekend!


Thanks for stopping by!!
