House-Mouse Puzzle

Good evening crafters, hope this finds you all safe and well. I am back to work tomorrow after a lovely two weeks off work and that has flown I can tell you lol! So I have put this on this evening as apposed to tomorrow morning!!!

Over on the House-Mouse and friends blog they have a new challenge
The DT have done some beautiful creations for this challenge and now I finally have the CD ROM I thought I would enter too! 

I love these little creatures and the art work is amazing, such fun characters.

It was hard to choose from all the images on the CD ROM but in the end I chose this one as I thought we could all do with some bright, cheerful colours after all the Red, Green, Silver & Gold's. Sorry if its too bright for some of you lol!
I started with my basic White card base, on the CD ROM there are some beautiful papers to go with each image so I had to have the puzzle one, I cut this to size and attached it to my card. To follow the sketch I then  chose three colours of card to match the puzzle paper and die cut the shapes out of these and attached to the card. In the top left corner I added a corners and accents die cut.

 I die cut the image using a circle die and matted this onto another circle die cut then added self adhesive pearls around the edge. I placed this in the center of the card and added the sentiment, also from the CD ROM at the bottom right hand corner.

Items Used:

White 6X6" card base
Joanna Sheen House-Mouse Triple CD ROM
Creative Expressions Foundation Card Custard & Sky Blue
Creative Expressions Self Adhesive Pearls
Create and craft Pastel Card Pink
Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles
Spellbinders Captivating Squares
Spellbinders Delightful Circles
Spellbinders Corners Accents Two

I would like to enter this in the   Challenge
