Mojo Monday 112

Woohoo! It's only Tuesday and I have my Mojo Monday card done for this week! I do believe in miracles...I do, I do!!!

I had fun with this sketch after I decided I would use this little Stampabilities mouse as my image. Click for a close-up look at how glittery the card is.

Here are the details:

The candy strip DP is by My Minds Eye, the sparkly white is glimmer paper by The Paper Sutdio and the dark red paper is Bazzill. I colored my image with copics and prismacolor pencils. As I said in my last post, I don't have a lot of copic colors yet, so I struggled a bit with this poor mouse's ears. They turned out more orange than pink like I planned. Obviously, I'm going to have to find a better pale pink for things like mouse ears and cheek color. I'm open to suggestions from the copic pros out there. Back to the card...I added some white sparkly fluff to the mouse's hat, then punched out the image with a circle punch and mounted it to a nestie. I used CB embossing folders on the two white pieces and then punched the mice with MS's mouse border punch. I created the sentiment on my computer and then punched that with a SU label punch. I sponged the edges with SU Riding Hood Red and then backed the label with red that I punched with the label punch and then cut in half, and overlapped on the ends. Finally, I added 2 clear rhinestones for accent on the ends of the sentiment, a glitter brad on the half circle on the top and some irredescent Offray ribbon behind the brad . Oh yes, I also attached a couple of individual mice strategically placed on the bottom of the card. I hope that's not overkill. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by again:))
