Henry Mouse

Thank you to Heather for this little charmer! Isn't he adorable? I think he qualifies for 4 challenges: A Spoon Full of Sugar's recipe of 3 designer papers and 3 buttons, Simon Says Stamp with "birthday or celebration", this photo as inspiration from Basic Grey Challenges,

and this sketch from Whiff of Joy, which I flipped so that Henry was heading into the middle instead of walking off the edge of the card.

My card is made from Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and Coredinations papers, the image is Henry Mouse from Whiff of Joy, coloured with Copics, the flourishes are from Upsy Daisy, the border punch is Martha Stewart, and the buttons and sentiment are from my stash.

If I learned one thing from this, it's that chalk ink is not the best for stamping with! How strange that I never tried that before. Ah well, a red pigment ink pad is now on the shopping list.

ETA: Thanks to Heather again! I've been pointed to another challenge site, Stampavie, which I hadn't known about before. Their challenge this week is "pink" so I'm entering my card, and I'll add the site to my list. XXXX
