Christmas Mice (FS73)

Today's Featured Stamper is Michele (chelemom). She has a great gallery! I could CASE her all day. The card I chose to CASE is called, "Pal." I loved her coloring and the layout of her card (shown at left).

I don't own any House Mouse images, but I've received some stamped images from friends, and I borrowed several stamps from a friend here locally and stamped several images from each one. This image is one that I stamped from my friend's collection. Using this image changes the theme of the card from friendship to Christmas, so the colors and patterned paper had to be changed as well. Changing the colors changes card stock, ribbon, and brads, too. With my image, I couldn't use the circle and HPH as an embellishment because it wouldn't fit, so I found this candy cane and bow in my stash. I think I took it off of a gift tag. I have lots of those! I also added the Cuttlebug embossing to the plain panel. My matted main image panel is popped up on foam dots. I liked this layout and probably will use it again.
