House Mouse Combined Challenge


Good evening, hope all is well with you. I've combined 2 challenges in 1. The House Mouse challenge this week was to use chipboard on your card. For me this was very hard. Although I have tons of chipboard things, I don't use them. They always feel too big, or just don't fit my theme. So I found one of these little tags that I got from the dollar section at Joann's, and thought it fit pretty good. Although, I must tell you, I went through every piece I had and didn't like anything. The second part of this challenge was the Sketch Challenge on SCS. The image is from one of the many swaps I like to sign up for, and the CS, and DP is DCWV. The ribbon is from my stash. And I colored my image with watercolor crayons. I was inspired to use them when I saw a card Gina's blog in which she used her watercolor crayons. I remembered that I had some of those, so I finally used them again. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog about the ATC's. The paper is from Stampin' Up and is called Tea Party.

Cute image and I love how you colored it. I had a hard time with this challenge and after making my card I remembered that I had some of those chipboard tags also from JoAnn's but didn't think of them while making my card. It worked great on yours!
