One Mouse Band

Although we have Summer all year round here in Florida, I know that many of my friends in the northern climes are looking for Spring. This brightly colored card using the House Mouse stamp "One Mouse Band" is for them.

I colored the image on Strathmore Paint Pad paper with my Prismacolor colored pencils and then cut it out with a stitched hexagon die. I backed the image on a lilac circle.

I then cut a card panel of bright yellow cardstock with my stitched rectangle die which I then embossed with a Darice embossing folder. I laid a strip of dark purple cardstock across the bottom section and adhered the focal image to the right side of the cardpanel and added a die cut sentiment to the top left hand corner.

I traced Glossy Accents over the sentiment to give it shine and dimension.

General supplies:
Strathmore Paint Pad paper
Reflections 110lb heavyweight cardstock for card base
Yellow, lilac and purple cardstock
One Mouse Band House Mouse image
Prismacolor pencils
Stitched rectangle, circle and hexagon dies
Thank You word die
Darice embossing folder.

    I'm in Jacksonville Beach, FL and we got some "I'm a weenie, it's so cold weather". We had a few freezes. It's a whole lot warmer down state. A lot of people up here had some whopper heating bills. We native Floridians can't take the cold.
