Two Challenges in One Card!


The Whiff of Joy Challenge a few weeks back was a color challenge. We were to use blue and brown together in our cards. I thought this sounded like a great challenge since those are colors I don't usually use together, at least not those by themselves. So I dug out this House Mouse stamp which is so adorable and the colors worked beautiful (if I say so myself) for the image. I also used the SC229 sketch which was a really fun sketch. Hope everyone is having a great stamping day.

Recipe:
Stamp: House Mouse Hot Cocoa
Paper: The Paper Studio from HL
Ink: Colorbox chalk
Accessories: Thank you ribbon from LSS, Lyra watercolor pencils, Stickles, and Nesties.
