HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #190 ~ "ANYTHING GOES" AND/OR "CASE THIS CARD"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! We have a new challenge, with a twist. You can go with Anything Goes (which is always an option), or if you'd like a chance to win a Special Prize you can CASE the card America made. You can find all the details over on House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Here's my card.

I decided to CASE America's gorgeous card and went with a photographic theme. The background paper is covered with images of cameras and if you look just below the "Oh Snap!" on the left-hand side, it even says "say cheese". Perfect for my little mouseys.

Sew What by Stampabilities

The cardstock I used was from Recollections (Black Cardstock) and Neenah (Solar White).

Birthday Cupcake by Stampabilities

The silver paper is Die Cuts With a View (Glitzy Glitter Paper) and it doesn't shed its glitter at all.

Birthday Donut by Stampendous

The beautiful stitched detail on the squares  was made using My Favorite Things "Stax Stitched Square" dies.

Make A Wish 02 by Stampabilities

The pierced detail on the stars was made using My Favorite Things "Stax Pierced Star" dies. 

Oh Snap by Stampabilities

The decorative background paper is from My Minds Eye (All Things Chalk) and the circle and scalloped circle dies are from Spellbinders.

Monica's Gift by Stampabilities

I added a little sparkle to some of my images using Copic AtYou Spica Glitter pens.

Amanda Mouse

I colored my images with Prismacolor Pencils and blended them with odorless mineral spirits.

Tiny Jumper by Stampendous

The final detail, the bling, was Stampin' Up! rhinestones.

Hopeful Mouse by Stampendous

This was such a fun card to CASE. I hope you'll play along with us.
