House Mouse Challenge ~ A Sketch



Happy House Mouse Monday!! 


Yay!   Time for a new House Mouse challenge.    This week’s challenge was picked by Emma, our fearless House Mouse Design Team leader and originator.   Emma designed this awesome Sketch . . .



And here’s my St. Patty’s Day card following Emma’s Sketch.



The stamp is called O Lucky Day, featuring Mudpie.   The dp used is by Reminisce, called Lucky Plaid and Lucky Stripe.   I added some green self-adhesive rhinestones along the edge of the circle and a gorgeous ribbon from my stash.   Mudpie was colored with Copics.  

I hope you can join us for this fun challenge.   All the details can be found on the House Mouse Challenge blog, along with the design team’s gorgeous cards.
