House Mouse Challenge No. 48 ~ A Sketch [& Happy 30th Birthday, Jessica!]



Happy House Mouse Monday!!


Our challenge this week is a Sketch, created by the super talented Emma of the House Mouse DT.




For my card, I used the Gruffies image called Red Roller Racing, featuring Biggly.  I just crack up every time I see the look of panic on his face!  




I also thought this would be a funny card for my daughter, Jessica, who turned the BIG 30 on Saturday!     hee hee     Especially, with the inside sentiment!




Obviously, this is not true ~ although I think some people really feel that way!!   

I used papers from my scrap drawer, which was nice for a change …   I always wondered why I kept these!   Added lots of red shiney brads on the card base and on the wagon wheels.  The image itself was stamped 3x, cut out twice and mounted with pop it dots.  I also heat embossed the little red wagon 3x.   Here’s a picture to show the actual shine, since it doesn’t show at all on the previous photos:



Soooo, I hope you can play along with this challenge  …  all the details can be found on the House Mouse Challenge blog, along with the other wonderful projects by my fellow Design Team members.  Be sure the check them out.
