2nd Anniversary for House Mouse Challenge

And a VERY SPECIAL Monday it is! Today marks the TWO-YEAR anniversary of the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog!! Wooo hooo! This week's challenge has been brought to us by the lovely Lorraine of the Design Team. Here's Lorraine's fun Sketch for our anniversary celebration!

We can't miss this can we so here is my entry and yes it's the start of my Halloween and plenty more to come especially now I have my Magnolia Halloween tild's from Lynne's this week!!!

I have used the pumpkin paper see below for a picture of the pad I have used!!

The gorgeous House Mouse if from a sheet of clear stamps hat are all Halloween coloured with copics and some Glamour dust he is perfect with these papers.

This shows you the effect of the foiled paper it really is lush!!! I have used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the orange bazzil I have layered behind the image and highlighted the raised effect with DI'n blacksoot. The border behind is black bazzil and Martha Stewart "Drippy Goo" punch and orange Bo-Bunny ribbon. This photo was also before I remembered the three embellishments on the two corners!!

To finish off in the corner I have used pumpkin nesties added stickles and a button my friend Jill (still no blog!!) bought me from the NEC!!!

This fabulous paper is the specialty paper from atd is has 12 glitter & foiled sheets of the most beautiful papers, the only trouble was which one to use and then because it's so beautiful I didn't want to cover it up! You can purchase this from the Craftden but I was lucky as it was an early birthday pressie from Lynne who I really think is slowly showing signs of being a new Halloween fan!!!! whey it's took my the last few years but she's nearly there!!!!

Holy cow! This card is gorgeous beyond compare. You used so many techniques when you created it, I can only imagine how long it must have taken. I'm so impressed and the best Halloween card I've seen. No wonder you love Halloween so much.
