It' purple and green week over at the Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenges. You don't have to use a Digi Doodle Shop image to enter the challenge, but why on earth wouldn't you? The have such cuties. This one is called Mummy Mouse The one in the second photo is called Mice In Pumpkin. When I looked at them I immediately thought of the nursery rhyme, The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe. She had so many children, she didn't know what to do. Soooo, I decided to use two images in my Halloween Card. I am sending this one to my daughter for Halloween. Hmmmm I wonder why?
The design papers are from MS Halloween Pack and really some of the pumpkins are sparkly. The cardstock is from a DCWV paper pad that I picked up at Michael's for 50% off last week. (I bought two one Brights and one Neutral, Shhh don't tell). I used the large scalloped square Nestability to cut out a mat, popped it up with foam tape and the used the flip side (orange and black spot) to mat it. I cut a black scalloped circle with a Nestability and matted the cut out image, colored with Copics. Popped a little "Candy" dots on the black for some more color. It really needed more color , didn't it? Ha Ha The sentiment was punched from a SU Tab Punch and I wrote the words with a white gel pen. I really hate using my handwriting, but I couldn't get the white on black with my PC. The green goo border was made with a MS edge punch. Still needed a bit of ribbon, so I tied the bow with yellow and white gingham. After I finished the card I got the idea to use some gauze bandages for the bow. I'll just hold that thought for the next card. Better yet, why don't you pick up the digi and make a gauze bow yourself. If you do please let me know so I can see your creation..
I popped the digi with all the kiddie mice inside. I thought it resembled Mummy walking in the door of her pumpkin house and all the kids yelling at her at once. (Sound familiar to all you Mom's, I mean Mum's out there?) Sentiments were computer generated.
So come on grab your self a digi here and dig out those lush green and purple papers in your stash and join in the fun. Link up here for a chance to win, win, win!
