Saturday Sketch meets House Mouse Monday :-)

I made this card following the fabulous sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge

I also used a stamp that I bought from Jay Jay, it arrived yesterday and had to use it :-) Cute eh ! I don't know how she could bear to part with this one !!

The theme on the House Mouse Monday Challenge is Paper Tole, I use this technique all the time I just didn't know it had a name :-) It does make the 3D effect much nicer as the card is rounded, makes the mice look plump :-)

I am also entering this card in the C R A F T Challenge
their theme is 'Decoupage'

I used download papers from Summertime Designs Beautiful papers !!

The sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set

Thanks for looking :-) I really appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Lorraine -- this is the best example of this technique I've seen. You've done an amazing job and I love how the little bellies are rounded too.

Lorraine, I have to say you are the energizer must stamp around the clock! I don't know how you do it, but I admire you for it. Have a great weekend.
