Here is my card for this week's House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. This is a record for me - It's usually Wednesday at the earliest before I get my card done. Since today is a holiday I'm off work and just playing in my craft room. I should be cleaning it, but oh well...
I decided to be a little different this time and chose a Gruffies image for my card. I just think this guy with his tea is so cute. It was given to me by my friend Lucy. The flower brads were originally a very light lime green and the ribbon slider was a bright chrome finish. I decided to get out my alcohol inks and tone them down a bit and make them go together better. The ribbon slider says "Happiness" and is much easier to see and looks much better in real life. The scan kind of screwed it up. I also decided to step outside my comfort zone with the color scheme. I rarely use blue and green together.
