Cocoa Mouse Autumn Cards


my friend Mary Anne recently gifted me with a few sheets of this great double-sided dsp by Jen Hadfield called "Warm and Cozy" so I made 2 cards with some of it, flipping it to use both sides as well as the tiny plaid border along the bottom. I used a SNSS Cocoa Mouse stamp set and paper-pieced the leaf with a different snippet of autumn leaves dsp, coloring the mouse with Copics. I used random snippets of cardstock for the mats and  different colored twine just for fun. I used 2 different sentiments from the Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set.


I'm sharing with the Double D "Feeling Fallish" challenge which includes this great inspirational photo...


Happy first day of November, and thanks for stopping by!

I love the cute little mouse and the lovely autumnal papers. We have had quite a nice mild day here for the start of November but it is feeling chilly this evening.

Love that DP and lucky you to get some! Brilliant you to design these darling cards so that you could take advantage of all the pretty patterns in the DP. The mouse & leaf image were perfect to show off this paper. Especially like the way you've paper pieced the leaf too. The border trims look great as you've done them with this paper design. Good job!
