House Mouse Lots of Layers

Good morning to you all. looks like it's going to be another sunny day too.

I'm here with another of my GDT cards for the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge and this week the lovely Pauline is hosting and has chosen the theme of lots of layers. There are lots of fabulous prizes to be won so why not get out those little mice and their friends and join in.

Now those of you who visit my blog will have noticed I love House Mouse decoupage and so of course for my layers I had to use a sheet from the Joanna Sheen 'fruit and nut' collection. This is also the card that my Dad picked to send to his younger sister on her 92nd birthday last month. Because these little mice need to have all the attention I kept this a CAS design just matting and layering some papers which were a magazine freebie and were a perfect colour match for these delicious strawberries (I love strawberries, don't you?) The sentiment was part of the decoupage sheet and I finished by adding a row of gems from my stash..



I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'four legged friends'
As You Like It challenge 'favourite colour duo and why' (because I love to see the strawberries growing in pots)
Crafty Catz challenge 'anything goes'
Sparkles Monthly challenge 'celebrate Mom or special lady' (2nd entry)
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'anything goes'

I am also entering this in the Paper Mill blog challenge with the theme of 'June'

Thanks for popping by and it would be great if you could head over to the challenge blog to see the fabulous DT inspiration.

I'm a sucker for the house meeces also for freebie papers. Love strawberries too but can't eat any as allergic to them so I'll just virtually admire your card from afar. Hugs Mrs A.

AWESOME. What a fantastic looking card. The layering is outstanding and the papers ARE perfect. Aren't you lucky to get those free papers and then putting them with this image is the perfect match? It's nice when that happens!! This card is so very pretty and so darn sweet! Hugs, Gail
