House Mouse Challenge #35 - Get Well Soon

Happy House Mouse Monday everyone. Over at the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog - our challenge is "GET WELL SOON" - please make
a card or anything you like to wish someone well.
Make sure to check what the other DT members have made to help inspire you. Check out their blogs for more details. But remember you are to use at least one
House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies image on your card/project.

Thanks America for the House Mouse image - called "Chewable Aspirins", the beautiful ribbon and little blue flower eyelets. I water coloured the image with Stampin Up reinkers. Clear embossed the ice cube and fun flocked the cotton baton. Added stickles to the aspirins. I water coloured the background, sponged overtop, then used itty bitty background stamp to added the speckles. Sponged edges with night of navy. Matted with bashful blue, distressed and sewed edges. Attached the ribbon and blue flower embellishment. The main card is 5" x 6" night of navy. The circle and striped design papers are form G.C.D Studios. Cut out the triangles, matted on white card stock, sewed all edges. Added the blue flower eyelets to the corners. I printed out the sentiment on my computer, sponged on bashful blue distressed edges. The stitched edges night of navy rectangle matting under the image.

Thanks for stopping by..
