Celebrate the Everday - CCT Challenge

Hi Everyone! Here is my card for this week's Cute Card Thurday Challenge which is to "have a giggle".

This WOJ image from the newly released Party Animals collection just makes me smile every time I see it. That mouse is so cute and he reminds me of my little 3 year old who is always so adorable- especially when he is up to some mischief!

I used sketch # SC207 from Splitcoasters and used my favorite embellies: ribbons and pearls. The sentiment is also from WOJ. I used my Copic airbrusher to create the background behind the mouse. Now, I have been using the canned air and am going through it too fast. I am looking into getting an air compressor and would welcome any advice or comment from any of you that already own one!

  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Basic Grey, SU! Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
  • Coloring: Prismacolors & OMS, Copic Airbrushing
  • Embellies: PaperTrey Ribbon, K&Co Adhesive Pearls

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Very sophisticated looking card! And the most beautifull colour :) That background paper looks so great and goes so well with everything else.
We have new snow here in Finland and it looks so nice, some sun shine would do it perfect :)
