There's a new challenge over at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and the theme is "Hey Pumpkin". Well I have pumpkin stamps and I have House Mouse stamps but I don't have a stamp with the little meeces and pumpkins so it was time to improvise.
I stamped up my pumpkin stamp, sponged around it, then cut a hole out of the center just big enough for a little mousie to peek through. Then I added some House Mouse decoupage images in front of and behind the image to make my scene.

I cut and mounted the image on a scalloped oval (cut with Nestabilities) and sponged a matching background paper. Then it was time to embellish. I punched out some fern pieces from black cardstock, sponged over a stencil in the corners and added a little bling to top it off.

Once I had a card front done, I decided to mount it on an easel card base so I could have a little more fun embellishing. I sponged a doily with matching colors, die cut some decorative corners and grabbed some more bling.

Here's the final product. I wish you could see it in person. It's so sparkly and fun. I'm entering it in the HMFMC155 Hey Pumpkin Challenge. Why not join in?

Pearls and Pumpkins! What a clever combo Snoopy! Love your little meecies with their pumpkins. This is how I used to play with my HM stamps...I think I have every individual mouse made and then I would put them into all sorts of scenes-so this card is dear to my heart! Takes a lot of imagination! Thanks for joining us at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge my friend!
