Three little Mice

Hi everyone and I hope it is sunny where you are. I had to rush home from work and picking my little Dragon up so that I got a decent picture - looks a bit pink but I assure you this card is white on white except for the image of course. I have used the sketch at Crafty Angels, a new challenge spot I have found , and is shown here.

I so enjoyed my last white card that when I saw the challenge at Penny Black - White on White plus a PB image I thought yes I want to do that one - luckily I have one set of PB images which I received when subsribing to one of my craft magazines (can't remember which one it was so long ago!). They are gorgeous images and are called Christmas Critters. I chose this little mouse choir trio and coloured it with my watercolour crayons.

The image is layered on to white glitter board punched using my most recent punch purchase and I do love scalloped circles. The other papers are a thin see through paper with bits of white on like snow right at the back and then the square is a plastic silk effect piece both from my stash. The buttons were in a candy win from Sarah AKA Anime Princess. The ribbon is white pearlised and is from my stash and the sentiment is from the PB set above. At the bottom I used a tree border punch from Fiskars, I think, then put a piece of glitter card behind it.

You can just about see the effect in this picture - I hope.

The other challenges I am entering are : -

Cooking it up with Katie - recipe - Christmas, sparkle and border,

Alphabet Challenge Blog - C is for Circles (Scallop and snowflakes),

Daring Cardmakers - most recent punch,

Scrapbox Challenge - circles,

By the Cute and Girly - Winter Wonderland,

Crafty Cardmakers - Stamp something,

Use Your Stash - White cardstock and

Sophisticat Challenge Blog - Ribbon and buttons.

please let me know what you think, I love reading your comments.
