House Mouse Bookmark Card

This card is a fusion of a SU card class kit and incorporating my favorite little mousies. I pushed myself to go beyond the typical fall colors (oranges and golds) and used a few other colors that are also prevalent in fall - reds, greens, and a tish of purple. Paired with the school theme, I think it works.

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #52
It took me SEVERAL weeks to come up with an idea for this mad sketch.

Color Inspiration
number stamp along top, used my neglected Stickles
Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge #2 ~ Multiple Images
365 Cards Day 200 ~ Stamp it Out 4 diff stamps at least 2 images

My Creation
The color got a little wonky in the first picture. The second pic of the full set, is more accurate.
