Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! It's the mid-way reminder for our "Holidays" (with the option of Anything Goes) Challenge!

With Independence Day coming up in a few weeks, I decided to make another patriotic card with the "Star Spangled Mice" stamp and three little mice ("Amanda", "Tiny Jumper", and "Hopeful Mouse") from Stampendous!

I started with the Tim Holtz Lady Liberty Silhouette stamp and heat embossed it on paper from the Pebbles Americana stack with WOW! Verdigris Mix embossing powder and layered it up on Recollections cardstock and more papers from the Americana stack.

I stamped the mice on Neenah Solar White cardstock, colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and fussy cut them to add to my card (with some cupcake topper flags) as a nod to my childhood days of watching the Fourth of July Fireworks display in New York Harbor.
