Christmas Mouse

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Embellish it Awesome
And here is my card for your inspiration:
So, I got creating and I forgot about adding lots of embellishments!  Oops!!  Luckily, I did use some enamel dots (old patterned versions, that I colored with gold metallic gilding polish--same as I used to color the die cut sentiment), and die cut sentiment and gold paint pen for the centers of my flowers.  The sketch I used is by our very own Leslie Turner, our awesome leader at Love To Scrap!!  Awesome sketch, Leslie!

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

What an adorable image, beautifully colored and great job embellishing!

Lisa Lynn said...

That's because your coloring is awesome you don't need to put lots of embellishments on your card. That paper is gorgeous. I joined as a follower because I am always in awe of your creations.

Fabulous card, Heather! The background paper gives this festive card lots of embellishment by itself. Great coloring, too. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble #51.

Lovely little mouse and poinsettia. A good idea about the paint pen to colour the sentiment and the dots - a great way to match colours. Thank you for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge xx Lynda DT
