From the Heart

     Today it's House Mouse card time again.  It's been a little bit since I made a mousie card and I am in a mousie kind of mood and needed a mouse card for a spring swap.  I decided to use a mousie stamp that hadn't seen ink yet although I've had it for a year.

          I know that you cannot see it too well in the pictures, but I used my cloud pattern and sponged clouds behind the images.  I think it looks more finished than plain white.  I wanted this card to be really special so I decided to do some paper tole.  Because I never know which piece I'm gong to end up using where, I color all the images up nicely that way I can pick and choose for the best pieces from each image.

     I don't even know how many layers I ended up using on this card. I do know there were quite a few.  I eve have several layers on the inside which you will have to imagine since I didn't take any inside photos.

     Hope my swap partner enjoys this card as much as I enjoyed making it for her.
