MID-WAY REMINDER FOR HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #193 ~ "DOTTY FOR DOTS"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! It's the mid-way reminder for our Dotty for Dots challenge and I've use the Preppy Princess paper stack from DCWV and my Stitched Squares die from My Favorite Things to make a dotted quilt for my background.

(click on photo for larger view)
   
Then I inked up my "Sew What" House Mouse stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamped it on X-Press It cardstock, and colored it with Copic Markers. I cut the image out with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty-Two and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Shabby Shutters and Tattered Rose).

I layered some dotted organza ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon (with a ribbon slide) over some grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up! and added it to the bottom of the card. Then I took a crocheted flower from Close to my Heart and added a button from my stash with some twine from American Crafts.

Now on to the Challenge details ...
