House Mouse Challenge #60 "On the Beach"


Click HERE for the Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop

This challenge is trying to get us to think warm! After the blizzard we had for Christmas I'm all for warm! For this card I used "Beach Cooler". It is a busy image so I went with a simple layout. The ice cubes are topped with Paper Glaze to give them a nice shine, but my photos do not capture it very well. The little flower centers are tiny yellow beads glued onto the center. The flower petals have a little shimmer from some Twinkling H20 in Icicle. My sentiment is just printed off from my pc. The ribbon is actually white satin ribbon by Stampin Up that I colored with my BG10 Copic marker to match. The top left clear circles are from Stampin Bella. I wanted a little something for that corner, but not too much. I like how it compliments the shine on the ice cubes.
I so enjoy seeing everyone's take on our challenges. I hope you find some inspiration from our team! Be sure to join us this week...you can see the details on the House Mouse Challenge Blog.

  6. Awesome card! All of the little touches (paper glaze, yellow beads, matching ribbon) are so wonderful! I loved reading the part where you said that the image was "busy". This is always a problem I have with some of them and your idea of using a simple layout helps! Best, Curt
