Life is Short...Enjoy

Good morning Crafty Friends!

Today I am sharing a card by The Paper Shelter Pepe L'Souris. I absolutely adore this collection of mice and their delicious cheese snacks.

I began with a panel of Neenah Solar White #110 and used the Miss Ink Stamps Random Dots stencil. I used Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Inks to create a fun background. The image was downloaded, printed, colored using Copic Markers and cut out with my Scan N Cut machine.

I embossed the sentiment  from the Penny Black Enjoy Builder on vellum with Versamark ink, heat embossed it with black embossing powder and adhered it directly on the panel. After that, I placed my image on foam strips and then placed it to the right of the sentiment to finish off the card. 

I appreciate you taking the time to visit. Have a wonderful day!
