Cute in any Color


Today's post features a House Mouse - YAY! (haven't done one in awhile) - for this week's challenge which is NOT TO COLOR THE IMAGE! Eeek!.....but this image actually lends itself to not being colored and I've already used it on the envelope of several get well cards. So, I made my card pretty much colorless, but I love it. My DP is Jenni Bowlin from Fourishes. My sentiment for the inside is from AMUSE Art Stamps and it say's "...feeling a little better?" Thanks, America, for the challenge. Not coloring a HM image is not easy, so thanks for the stretch. The DT did some great cards, as always, so be sure to check them out. Happy week-end and thanks for stopping by.

The image is like something you'd find in a 300 page childrens book, where they slip in a little picture every 30th page or so. Very cute card, love the colours, or not colours, lol.

I love love your card - it is a darling image and one I do own but I could never make it as striking as you have without colouring it. Beautiful card!

Hi Karen, I can't believe it is has been more than a week since I visited your blog. You have been busy creating some beautiful cards. I like this house mouse card. The way the layers lead you into the image is a really cool effect. Super way to display this image. Stay cool!

The House Mouse images are so beautifully drawn they look great even without color, though I know you must have been just itching to do some of your beautiful coloring. This looks just wonderful with the Jenni B papers!
