Playful mice

   Our theme for the Creative Corner challenge this week is Boooooo! I could not resist these mice jumping out of the pumpkin. I can just imagine them going boo as they jump on the larger one.
   The image is from Joanna Sheen's 8x8 Cardmaking Collection of House Mouse Designs. I cut out the three small circular images and fixed them over the corresponding mice in the large image. The background for the card is made from purple and green core'dinations cardstock and I used a gold bordered orange peel off between the two colours. The letters for the sentiment were cut using a Tattered Lace die and then separating the letters. Finally I added three card candi.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
