Two Cute Mice Celebrate Love

Hello!

I wanted to share with you this cute mice card :)







Dear Susan had sent me these quite some time ago, but now I decided that they have been enough in my pocket for me to smile at... it's time they were coloured :)

I coloured them with Copics, and for once I didn't follow any sketches.. I invented mine!! :) I wanted to take part in Stampacular Sunday Challenge; where they want to see Love cards.. without any hearts if possible!! :) (for a double chance to win their lovely stamp)





A close up of the image.



Aren't they cute?

I used some Paperamania papers for these, I love the soft pinks. I also used some scraps from my scrap folder.. it's always nice to use them up without binning them.






I tried so very hard not to use any hearts.. to have my second chance at that lovely HAnglar card.. I love them soo much, and was never lucky to win one! I like the one for grabs a lot! :) Fingers crossed!! :)







Instead of hearts I embellished with flowers, a large pearl button (I sliced the loop part with scissors)and and half pearls. I also made some faux stitching with a fine tipped marker.






The inside is decorated with the same colour, and I rubbed on that cute sentiment, I think it matches the colour and the style of the stamp. I finished it off with some more faux stitching, and a small red bow.

I hope you like it, and that you have a lovely week. Tomorrow here it's a public holiday.. no school and the kids are free from school. Smiles!!






Thanks for looking
