It's House Mouse Monday - Do You Carrot All?


Ok, that is a bad pun! But I hope you like my card! I seem to be on an orange kick this week!
Today at House Mouse & Friends, we have a sketch for you to try! I love it - it has so many possibilities. Here is the sketch:
I used the darling little "A Carrot Between Friends" for my image. I stamped it in VersaFine Black Onyx Ink and then watercolored using reinkers and an aqua brush. The designer paper is all from Stampin' Up!. I have so many eyelets and brads and buttons that I decided to use some of each on here! The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I also sponged some Bashful Blue in the sky, using my hand-cut cloud stencil.

I like how this turned out and hope that you will play along! Our sponsor today is KL Stampin N Scrappin, so be sure to stop by the HM & F blog to see what they are all about! The prize this week is yummy and fun Basic Grey Cupcake Designer Paper! And check out the other Design Team members' cards while you are there!
