Click on image to enlarge. This cute little mouse is by Meljen and was a freebie a while back. I think she is really a great designer. I got to know her work when I did the card for Michelle (see earlier post) and downloaded her cute little donkey. I wanted to get my card in for their challenge, and I got in with only four minutes to spare. Whew! I've got to be a little more careful and not lose track of time.

I think easel cards are one of the easiest cards to do, once you figure out your papers, etc. I did this card for a good friend who has just graduated from a nurse's course. She is the mother of two girls and this was not an easy thing for her, so I'm so proud of her. I wanted to do a card that wasn't a typical "graduation" card. (I may still put some little confetti, etc. in the envelope though.) I like the yellow with the purples. I colored the image with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The sentiment is a MS stamp. The ribbons and brads are from M's.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Meljen's Design Team - easel card

Stamp Something - flowers

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays - digis

Sentimental Sundays - fun (my mouse was dancing - LOL!) and sentiment

There She Goes Clear Stamps - easel card

Digital Tuesday Challenge - bling or glitter (my flowers on the stamped paper have glitter in centers)

Papertake Weekly Challenge - sketch

Your Next Stamp Challenges - easel card

Totally Gorjuss - congratulations

Thanks for looking.
