Here's the Mouse Again!

It's Thursday which means it's time for another Crazy4Cocoa & Friends challenge! This week the challenge is to use die cuts on your card. If you don't have any dies, just use punches. I used Cocoa's Christmas tree digi image for my card, cutting him out by hand and popping him up on 2 different labels four die cuts. The dp is by Bo Bunny and I just let the paper do most of the work for me. I turned one corner down, and stuck a piece of matching tan cardstock into the corner just for a little interest. Then I used a tiny brad to hold the corner down. The bottom border was done with an EK punch in matching red cardstock, and it was just enough to break up all the green.
Thanks for stopping by today and if you find time to play along with us, use the keyword C4C17 when you upload to the galleries.
I wanted to take a minute to say thank you to all of my wonderful friends who sent cards and extended such thoughtful birthday wishes to me on Sunday! You made my birthday VERY special, and I thank each and every one of you for remembering :)
Have a fantastic Thursday!

Carol

Once again, a HIT! Great coloring and cutting. That paper is beautiful. That turned down corner and brad adds a nice little touch. I have to go see what I can come up with.

Everything about this is just so wonderful! Love that tiny border punch at the bottom and Cocoa is "framed" just beautiful!

Nice job on cutting out that tail! I would have managed to butcher that up several times before I got it right! Great use of background paper, too. I'm never quite sure what to do with some of mine. This is starting some gears turning in the old noodle! Thanks for the inspiration. :-)
