Mouse playing with leaves



   I needed to make a very quick card for a little boy whose birthday is on Monday. The frame was originally from Dragons Lair Designs. I imported it into a graphics program and played around with the colouring. I cut the centre out and placed the stamped image behind it before attaching the whole to white card.
   The image is from the House Mouse Designs set of rubber stamps called 'Autumn'. I coloured it using Promarkers and then lightly dusted the background with distress inks of yellow, orange and blue for a sunset.
   I finished with a copper coloured peel off sentiment.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Penny Black and More - autumn colours
   Little Claire's Designs - a birthday card
   Ooh La La Creations - birthday boy
   Cute Card Thursday - awesome autumn
   Whoopsi Daisy - colours of autumn
   QKR Stampede - fall colours
   Addicted to Stamps - for a man or boy
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - autumn colours
   The Cutie Pie - cute with shades of autumn
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Odie But a Goodie - autumn (old stamp)
   Gruffies and Guests - anything goes + option of fall
   Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
   Fantasy Stampers - autumn colours
   Creative Moments - anything goes/fall colours
   The East Wind - feel the fall
