House Mouse Challenge #27 - Chipboard

Happy Monday everyone....

Today's House Mouse Monday Challenge is to use chipboard on your card as long as it has a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image on it. This fun image "Jalapeno Peppers" was given to me by the one and only "America" along with many other cute images, ribbon and embellishments, plus a sweet House Mouse card - Thanks America.

I coloured the image was prisma colour pencil crayons and gamsol. I drew in the wall lines and the horizontal line to finish off the scene. The peppers, jar and candles were all clear embossed to give them a shine. Sponged edge with chocolate chip, matted with gingersnap brown. Attached the snaps with crop o dile. The two small peppers in the upper left corner are from My Heart Stamps for You - South West set. Edges sponged with chocolate chip and edges stitched.Main card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 - Martha Stewart - Chrysanthemum, next layer is white cardstock - I sponged the edges with apricot appeal. Next layer is gingersnap brown. Made the three vertical panels. Polka dot dp is matted with chrysanthemum and edges stitched. Added the chipboard sentiment "Wish" bottom center panel. Image panel is up on pop dots. I will be giving my Husband this card for his birthday - He absolutely loves hot peppers - His birthday is March 3rd.... When I saw this image - I knew it was perfect for my DH's birthday.
