Micey Nice

 Hi and welcome to this unexpected post!  It's been a long time since I've posted a card for a challenge rather than because I'm on the design team.  But this weekend was a long weekend and I had a bit of extra time and enthusiasm to be in my craft room.  On Friday I coloured up every image in the Mice Day to Celebrate set and then today (Monday) I decided to make a birthday card for my youngest niece and pulled out the coloured images.  It was nice to see that most of the colours I'd used matched the current colour challenge at MFT so I decided to work with their sketch as well to come up with this card.

Apologies for the horrible colour of the photo - it's a searing hot day today and all the curtains are closed to try and keep out the heat.  Consequently my lightbox - even with its lights - is casting a dull shade.

Onto the card.  I took the images I'd coloured which matched the colour challenge - I also coloured some with a teal colourway so left them out.  I chose some MFT cardstocks (possibly retired but I didn't have the exact match to the challenge).  I arranged my colours and card in accorance with the challenges and adhered everything but the mouse holding the gift with liquid glue.  For the wee mouse holding the gift, I used foam tape.

I finished by colouring the hats and balloon with clear sparkle pen and added some enamel dots and hearts in the challenge colours.

Thanks for visiting.
