Mouse under a hat?

Two cards in one day?!? Well, the first one was supposed to be posted yesterday but I was having issues posting it while I was home and I thought I emailed the file to work but it didn't go through.

Anyway, I really don't do well with color challenges and it's been awhile since the last time I join the Loonie bunch team...LOL! So, when I saw their color challenge last week and tried several attempt, I literally gave up but tried it again when I saw Ashley's card :). But, I still able to messed up on this challenge because they're asking for a Birthday theme...oh well, I tried!

The flowers are from Flower Garden set from PTI. I thought I had some brown crystal beads to make the center of the flowers popped and I think the card will look prettier but I had to settle with what I have...pink crystal beads.

The second card is for Amy of Prairie Paper and Ink, Friday Sketch Challenge. This Mouse Under the Hat is from Whiff of Joy. I grab the colors from the patterned paper that I used on this card.

The mouse was stamped on whisper white card stock, stamped again, cut and raised with stamping dimensional.

Tomorrow, I hope you join me and the rest of the BearyBox Design Team on a fun sketch challenge. Want a sneak peak for this week's goody bag? Click here :)
