House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #72-Celebrate Something New


Welcome to another House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #72-Celebrate Something New!



I chose to make a card for a new little love bunny baby girl using this darling Happy Hopper stamp and the out of the box nestie technique. I also used added some cuttlebug corners and made a sort of "fancy frame" look.

I love this 'quite contrary' My Minds Eye DP, so I hope you don't get sick of it...it is so gorgeous! I paired it with an outgoing In Color cardstock and ribbon from Stampin Up! plus some pretty satin ribbon and pearls and added a fun punched border.

I am a pretty literal stamper, so Something New meant a new baby card, but golly you should see what the other Design Team came up with...some real creative themes...you might even laugh out loud!

Hop over and see what the other stampers came up with this week and join in Challenge #72 and maybe win a couple of fun digi's from Paper Cupcakes!

Oh, Sue, this is so beautiful and I love the little ear lopping over the edge -- just darling. Since your interpretation of the challenge was literal, perhaps I can play too -- just got a "new" HM stamp today!

Hey there GF! I really need to visit MUCH more often - you are always just soooooo creative! I love everything about this card! These MME papers are my favs too. (I swear we must be related ... long lost sisters!) And I love the idea of using the two different ribbons - very striking. Your coloring of this cutie is perfect and I MUST have the punch you used around the image!!! Wow, I love it! :) hugz, Mary
