Blissful Day

Howdy!  Hope everyone had a great day today.  I did.  I had some quiet time this evening while my mother in law took my daughter and her cousin to Disney on Ice 100th Year Anniversary show.  I was able to do some card making while listening to a James Patterson book on CD.  I love my quiet time.

This card is a 6x6 square card.   The little mouse image is from Beary Wishes.  I colored it with my colored pencils and OMS.  I added some glitter gel pen to the roses and the little flower on the mouse and the swirls on the cup. I trimmed the image to slightly less than 4x4 and matted it on a 4.25x4.25  tan piece of card stock.  The background is made from strips of rose patterned paper cut to  1" and matted on strips of brown card stock cut to 1 1/8".  I staggered them according to a sketch from Feeling Sketchy.  I printed off the sentiment and trimmed it down, matted it on the tan card stock and placed it in the bottom right hand side.  I used pop dots for the focal image.  I inked the edges of the focal image and sentiment with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. I used a dark red card stock from Colorbok for the card base.  To finish off the card, I added some ruby red pearls to the top right and bottom left corners.

I am entering this card into the Feeling Sketchy #42 challenge for this week.  I just recently found this site and this is the first time I am entering one of my cards. I am also entering this one in the Through the Craft Room Door challenge for this week..Anything Goes.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you have a great weekend.  God bless  you.
