Berry Cute Mice!

Hi Everyone
Today I'd like to share a card I made for a competition entry. I love mice images and love summer fruits so the little House Mouse Berry Mouse are (one) of my favourite images. I tried to come up with a new way of using Joanna Sheen's HM decoupage and created a Strawberry shaped card out of red and green cardstock which I ran through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder to try and make it look like a textured strawberry. I managed to make it into an easel card so that it would stand up and show off the images which I rearranged to fit. The second image shows the back of the card and the envelope where I used some leftover decoupage layers for decoration.

I love this little card and hope you do too! I'd like to enter it into this week's House Mouse and Friend's Challenge which this week is to 'Choose Your Favourite image' which - would you believe it, is actually harder than you'd think! ha! ha!

Anyway, have a nice evening.

Bye for now
