House Mouse Challenge #129 - Autumn

Here's my card for the House Mouse HMFMC#129 to use an autumn or harvest theme. This was the only HM image I have that would work for this challenge, so I colored up this cutie and put him in a warm cup of cocoa. The dsp is from the LilyBee autumn spice pack, and I used a piece of saffron card stock for the larger mat, scoring it diagonally and outlining the edge with a brown marker. The Cheery Lynn flourish and leaves were done with tangerine tango card stock, and the texture was added with a square lattice ef. The tiny golden acorns were punched with an EK success border punch. The sentiment is by SNSS.

That's going to do it for me for this day. Have a great Thursday and thanks for spending a little time with me today :)

Here you are with a pretty card early this morning. That image is too cute. Love your leaves and flourish, especially the color.

Psstt...this would fit the WT395 challenge today with your 5 leaves...odd numbers today.

This card is amazing. I love the leaves, acorns, flourish but I really love that little precious mouse. Wonderful coloring on that cup and the little guy. The scoring really pops on your label die. Another winner from you my friend.
