One Mouse Band

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and this fortnight we have a Colour Challenge - Amethyst, White, plus one other colour chosen by Donna.

For my card I've used a fabulous digi image from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Triple CD and had another go at water colouring.  It took me several attempts to colour this adorable image as the ink kept smudging, because it had been printed I assume - I had to keep things really dry.


My papers are from Pink Petticoat, the sentiment tags are from LOTV and the punched border is my Fiskars Edge Punch. I die cut my flower and added a button, twine and ribbon from my stash.

We have two fabulous sponsors this time:

Simon Says Stamp

http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/servlet/StoreFront

http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/servlet/StoreFront

Who are generously giving a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of some of their Premium Dye Ink Pads to one lucky player.

and

Pizzazz Aplenty

http://www.pizzazzaplenty.blogspot.com/

Who are giving a surprise package of embellishments worth $15.00.
(Due to increased postage costs, the winner for this prize must reside in the USA)

So what are you waiting for, you still have a week to play along.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Stampin' for the Weekend - Flower Power
One Stitch at a Time Challenge 200 - Use a Digi
Doodle Pantry Challenge 43 - Any Digi Goes
The CD Sunday Challenge - All About Spring
Eureka Stamps Challenge 77 - Animal Friends
Di's Digis Designs - Tic, Tac, Toe (Digi, Die Cut, Flowers)
Sentimental Sundays Challenge 194 - Pack a Punch (border punch)
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge 58 - One Button, One Bow, One Flower

Thank you for popping in today, don't forget to take a look at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and join in with our Colour challenge.
