Mouse Thanks

Hi!  This card was made specifically with someone in mind, which is rare for me :)  Later on today, it will be winging its way across the world to the recipient.

As soon as I saw the sketch at MFT, I loved it and wanted to make a card and this is the result:

I colored the adorable wee mouse from Harvest Mouse with Copics then worked out what colors matched the Copic colors.  I used SU's Island Indigo for the banner and a combination of PTI's Fine Linen and Classic Kraft for the stenciling.

The stencil I used is the Large Grid Stencil - I love the graphic look - and I faded it out at the bottom and sides.  The Thank You is from Adorable Elephants and white embossed onto a stitched banner from Blueprints 20.  The white layer is also die-cut using Blueprints 20.

Thanks for visiting!
