I am entering this card into two challenges. At House Mouse we had a sketch to follow here -- http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/ and at the Cuttlebug Spot the theme is to use felt. I love the House Mouse stamps and had this cutie eating watermelon. I had these felt "buttons" that I had never used, so I was glad to be able to use them for this project. I cuttled the yellow background with the large flowers cuttlebug folder and brushed darker yellow ink over them to enhance them a bit. I enjoyed making this card. It was cheery after a week of cold and rain here. The sun has come out today -- YEAH!  You can click here to see the cuttlebug challenge -- http://thecuttlebugspot.blogspot.com/
