House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

The House Mouse Mash
I was working in the craft room late one night
when my eyes beheld an eerie sight
for a mouse from my card began to rise
and suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash
He did the House Mouse mash
The House Mouse mash
It was a craft room smash
He did the mash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash
He did the House Mouse mash

I'm sure you all remember that song...well...maybe not my version. Sooooo...what's that song have to do with my card? It's based on this weeks House Mouse challenge - Song Title/Lyrics. Get all the challenge details and see the design team samples HERE.

I picked The Monster Mash. That song always brings back memories of Halloween when I was a kid. I remember how cool it was back in the day. ha! Since it reminds me of Halloween...I made a Halloween card.



I used black Flower Soft under my little mouse ghost. After I sprinkled on the Flower Soft, I sprinkled ultrafine Black Glitter all over it. The glitter sticks to all the Flower Soft glue that's still exposed and covers it up. Looks SO COOL.



This is the inside. The sentiment and the ghost mouse are from the same House Mouse Halloween clear set. Then I stamped a spider and drew a little line to make him hang.



I got the layout for my card from this weeks Card Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. See Sketch Challenge 244 details HERE.
