Take Flight

Hi! I hope you are having a good day. It has been a pleasure being a guest designer for House Mouse and Friends. I want to show you a card that I made using this fun House Mouse stamp ( Cling Butterfly Ride ) that I just recently won. This little mouse is having a blast! The new challenge at House Mouse and Friends is Yellow and/or Orange. Come and join in the fun!

I adhered yellow and orange patterned paper to a white card base. I used one of Tim Holtz's Alterations dies to cut out the bottom area of white card stock so that the patterned paper can show through. The image was stamped on the top white card stock and colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I paper pieced the butterfly and pop dotted it to the image. Clear sparkle embossing powder was added to the butterfly.  You can see it better in the picture below.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
