House Mouse & Friends Challenge #74

The House Mouse & Friends Challenge #74 is to create anything that represents the letter "B", so I'm using this image with the "brush" as my inspiration. I made this card for a sick little boy I read about on SCS and I hope it brings a little smile to his face when he opens it.
I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black ink on water color paper, then embossed it with clear detail ep and colored with Tombows and an aqua brush. I added some green and red stickles to his body and mouth for a little sparkle. I used a set of those $1 wooden stamps to create the silly sentiment, and then used a Just-Rite stamp set to create the fancy border. The border was stamped with Versamark and embossed with silver ep, and those punched corners were done with a retired SU! punch.
Have a terrific Tuesday and thanks for stopping by :)

Oh my gosh how darling! Have never seen this particular HM image before, but I LOVE it! After 8 years of college and dental school, one of my sons is just a few months away from completing it all and actually becoming a dentist/doctor! This will be a perfect stamp for his graduation card! hehe I'm off to HM to find it now! TFS!
