House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!

YEAH!  I have been waiting to let you all know that I have been chosen as a guest designer for the month of June for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!  I'm very excited to be given this opportunity!  I love House Mouse stamps!  There's quite the variety to choose from, as the mice are always getting into mischief! lol

So the challenge this fortnight is Jewels/Jewelry.  The design team has made some awesome cards for this one!  Make sure you check them out here!  For my card I have used lots of pearls!

The image I have used is called Mouse Bounce.  I have colored it with my copics, and have added pearls to the pin heads.  I decided on the red and black combo to match the pin cushion, and then just made some layers!  This was my first time attempting to use my punch set to do some sewing.  I think that it came out ok, but I think that I should have used smaller "stitches."  Oh well!  Live and learn!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - embellish your main image
Fab 'n Funky - What'eva
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Things with Tails 

Have a great week, and don't forget to join us at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!
