Inspired By #219 Challenge and Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I have been really stepping back from my stamp room.  That said, when I get in the mood to create, I pop on the internet and look for challenges that inspire me.  Well, guess what? Inspired By Challenge #219 did just that!

Here is the inspiration photo;


Here is my inspired card;

I used an older Stampin Up embossing folder to mimic the knitting in the photo.  I do like the added texture it gives my card.

I used Hero Arts Playful Animals for this adorable little mouse, colored with my Copics.  He makes me smile.  Actually, this card makes me smile --


I also am joining into, a new to me challenge, Tic Tac Toe #192.


I went with the 1st column; Vellum, Floral, and Stitching.

Since I had my Hero Arts stamps out, I used the [retired] Delicate Blossoms set for the flower.  I made a mask, covered the image and then ink blended on some Oxide inks.

I used faux stitching [unbranded set], and a sentiment [on vellum] from Memory Box Signature Greetings.

Thanks Challenges!  I had fun~

Terrific! What a fun mouse card, loving that texture. Your flower card is wonderfully done, and very interesting as it is left white with all the color around it -- a unique way to accent your flower
