Hi and welcome to my blog. I am so glad you stopped by today! Here is a card I made using a cute House Mouse stamp. I fussy cut the three mice and cut them apart to fit in my umbrella die that I cut from patterned paper. I then patted the umbrella with Versa Mark ink, added Sparkle embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle and heat set it. I do not use pastel colors a lot, so it was fun working with them on this card.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
