Animal Antics & Double Trouble

There's an "animal antics" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week, and I had to play along. I'm using a pre-colored digi by Sara Sherlock that I found here on her blog. I used some Cosmo Cricket dsp, along with some brown and green card stock, and added a Hero Arts sentiment stamped in Memento rich cocoa ink. The brown cardstock was embossed with the So Trendy M-bossabilities folder from Spellbinders.

Here's my entry for the House Mouse HMFMC126 which is "Double Trouble." Use 2 critter images from House Mouse on your card. I've seen those bright neon-colored casts that doctors put on children's casts these days, so I used my neon Copics to color the bandages and flourishes on this card The background was embossed with SB's So Trendy M-bossability, and the flourishes are by Cheery Lynn. Sentiment is by Stampa Rosa.

Here's wishing you a wonderful day, thanks so much for stopping by.
