Mousey die challenge


 I can't believe it's time for another challenge over at house mouse and friends challenge.

The challenge this time around is as always anything goes  and the optional theme this time is to use dies. 

When I make cards I like to try and make them with a recipient in mind and as I have quite a few family birthdays coming up it was easy to find inspiration.

I used this fun stamp of some cute wee mousey friends getting into the party spirit  and helping each other to a tipple  from the dregs of a martini glass.

I used a couple of dies on this card ,the first I used is a background die from memory box cut into pale blue centura pearl card I love this die as the die gives so much as you can use both the positive and the negative so no wastage.

I decided on a shaker card just to add to the party feel and used a couple of circle dies to create my window and frame before layering the dies and acetate to create the shaker and topping with the stamped image which once coloured I'd fussy cut.



Now I said there's no wastage with the background die so my sentiment inside the card shows just how that works and just finishes the look as its perfectly colour co-ordinated.
Hope you can all join in the fun mixing your dies with those super cute mices and can't wait to see what you all come up with.
