Dandelion magic

There seems to be quite a few challenges around that have an autumnal theme as everyone seems to be looking forward to autumn while I would rather cling to the last remnants of summer, even if autumn does officially start imminently and might even be today.

Anyway I thought I might start to replenish my male card stock and this new house mouse stamp seemed to be a good place to start. I only had one house mouse stamp so was a little bit naughty and treated  myself. I decided to go down the autumnal road as even though there are Christmas challenges around too I'm not into Christmas yet that has to wait till November at least.

I coloured the image with promarkers and added sakura glitter pen to the dandelion clock. I stamped and masked leaf images around the edge of a die cut circle and coloured them again with promarkers and then cut around the edges before laying over the house mouse image.I kept the rest of the card relatively simple using a kraft base card and a layout from everybody art. 

I added a wee bow and a tag made with a stamp from Lily of the valley which I stamped onto white card coloured with the same yellow promarker I coloured the dandelion in, and a dark brown promarker for the stamp itself.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

House mouse challenge - bingo I used ribbon,yellow and flowers and leaves

stamping sensations -sew special (a bit of a cheat as the stitching is already on the ribbon)

Fantasy stampers - autumn leaves

the paper girls - sweater weather

fantastic Tuesday- anything goes/colour me autumn

city crafter - fall has arrived (photo Inspired) I chose the blue sky and imagined all the dandelions and mice playing in the rolling fields

OSAAT - leaves

passion for promarkers-boys will be boys

IndigoBlu - autumn days

left of centre - no designer paper

Aw, Julye, this is a wonderful card. I too am not quite ready to think Christmas so I loved the Fall colors you've used here, they are so rich and warm. Your mouse and his dandelion are beautifully colored and it's great to take the time to replenish the stash!
