House Mouse & Friends Challenge #52: A Year-In-Review

Choose from any of our past challenges and create a new project. Make sure you let us know which one you pick! But wait...hold on to your tails...we have a sponsor this week!! YIPPEE! Wait till you see all the stash up for grabs!!!

Get all the details HERE.

Now......on to my card. I picked Challenge #30 - make a shaped card. I had this idea of creating a tombstone shaped Halloween card - so the shaped card challenge worked perfect. What a cool lookin' bat that mouse makes.

The gray cardstock is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then sanded off. I lined up the folder so the skull was right up there on top! OH YEAH...that is perfect! I also added little black Twinkle Stickers in the eyes of the skull. Check out that cool fence at the bottom ;) Since I don't have a fence border punch *gasp!* I created my own.

Take a closer look at that mouse...

Those wings are covered with Sugar Plum Shimmerz Paint. Soooooo shimmery! I also used a clear glaze pen on the eye.

Open up the card to find a bunch of bones. Imagine that! LOL!

You have really outdone yourself this time, Lori! This is jaw dropping amazing. When I look at this I just wonder what goes on inside your head to create it. I wish I could have that inside my head!!
