House Mouse and Verve

Good morning! One of my goals this year is to get back to the fun of posting a card every day or so and today I actually have two to share  that are on opposite ends of the elegant / whimsical scale.

First let's do whimsical!  The Free for All challenge at SCS yesterday was to make a card with something that was iced, and I had this adorable House Mouse image all ready to color, so it was the perfect choice.  My mom always made us angel food cake with pink frosting on our birthdays, so, of course, I had to color it pink!!

I'm going to sneak this under the wire at the House Mouse Anything Goes challenge, too. :)

The next card I made is for the Viva La Verve challenge.  I used MFT's gorgeous Blueprints 20 dies for the scalloped layer around the outside and the stitched rectangle.  I would be perfectly happy to use that scalloped layer on every. single. card.  Seriously!!

The flowers are from Verve's Surely Goodness set, cut out with the matching dies.  I embossed them on Kraft and then colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.  The pretty Scripture verse is a Verve Plain Jane - although it might be in a set by now... I'd have to check.

Thanks for stopping by today!
See you tomorrow!
