Today I'd like to share my latest card for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge which this week is to create something with the theme 'New'. I received this latest stamp for Christmas so had to ink up this 'newbie' in my House Mouse stash. With Christmas over and our thoughts turning to warmer weather you can't help but be like this little mouse and dream of sunnier climes so I think the thought of a 'new holiday or break away' might also fit the bill! I would also like to enter this card in Simon Says Stamp's 'New Something' challenge. Why not head over to both blogs and join in with the New Year fun!
Anyway, I coloured the image with Promarkers and layered him up on coloured mats cut with my Spellbinders bloom die. The aptly named papers are 'Travel Light' from We R Memory Keepers and I used gold Card Candy to highlight the corners and one of their fab oval sentiments. I also couldn't help adding a little bit of spotty yellow ribbon. I love this colour scheme for a change after what seems like an endless production line of festive red and green cards!
Hope you like it. Thanks for looking.
