King of the Jelly Beans

    Here's another House Mouse card using a newly released stamp from Stampendous.  I just love how Mudpie (the mouse) has hoarded all the jelly beans.  It reminds me of my little Maltese, Pearl Estelle.  She would beg for treats when she was young over and over again and make a little pile of them in the middle of the floor for later when she wanted a little something.  Well we were given a second puppy, Opal Ann.  Opal Ann decided Pearl was piling up all those treats for her.  That ended Pearl's hoarding from then on any treat she received she swallowed as fast as she could.

Anyway, back to the card, it has some very different embellishments from what I generally use.

See what I mean, I don't think I've ever used such huge flowers on a card but they really seemed to go with the paper and I used some of the large polka dots for their centers.

You can see that I have also just slathered on the Stickles.  That pile of jelly beans sparkles from every direction.  I just love me some glitter.
