House Mouse Midweek Squeek

I couldn't resist making this card for the midweek reminder at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge which is my last card as a GDT for May.

I started by using a Spellbinders die to cut a large circular card with the fold at the top. I then cut a small amount off the back so that there is a flat edge for the card to stand up. I then used a Carolines Texture Mat to stamp the background bubbles (this was a very early purchase when I first started crafting but still very useful). I then cut this using a smaller Spellbinders circle die and ran a gold pen around the edge and attached it to my card. I then stamped the lovely House Mouse images that are from a stamp sheet by Joanna Sheen and die cut these out. The images are coloured using alcohol pens. To finish off I tied a bow using bakers twine and attached a charm. I then used self adhesive pebbles over a few of the bubbles and added a few touches of glitter to the smallest bubbles.

I'd like to say a big thank you to all of the HM&FMC team for inviting me to play along with them this month. xx
