Fun in the Sunshine

I just had to use these spring colors to celebrate the first day of sun in almost a week! I am so happy spring is almost here! It will be time to find out if the bulbs I planted last fall actually took...keep your fingers crossed. Ok, so the sun was out yesterday when I actually made the card, but not now; bummer.

Oh, yeah...the card....

I decided to color up this little House Mouse when I was making my last post. So I had one ready to go! I combined a few challenges and this is the combo I came up with! The sketch is Friday Sketchers #91. I also wanted to add the image in a circle which is for Cupcake Craft challenge #80 - Round and Round. I added the Cuttlebug Dots background for the same reason. The dots were then brayered with Summer Sun to add in the yellow to qualify for the Daring Cardmakers challenge - Here come the Sun. It also qualifies for the Papertake Weekly challenge to use Buttons, Bows, Brads and Bling! Ok, one more! The glittery designer paper and the glitter was added around the scalloped mats for the Stamp, Scrap & Doodle challenge - Sparkle and Shine. Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays is also having a DT call, so head on over and check it out!

Whew...So here is another picture to show the glitter better:

And another to show the ribbon:

And the last one to show the rhinestones!

Until next time, happy crafting!
