House Mouse Challenge #40 --- Wedding/Anniversary

The House Mouse Challenge for this week is for Wedding/Anniversary. I don't have any of the adorable wedding stamps for the Mousies, Bunnies, or Gruffies, but I think this image of the cuddlesome twosome in the sunflower fits the theme just perfectly. After all, not all weddings are white veils and tuxes. I think this could fit well for anniversaries, too.

I colored the image with Copics, a change from the PrismaColors that I usually use for House Mouse stamps. Then I found in my stash this beautiful printed vellum sheet from Paper Pizazz. I've probably had it for years! But I trimmed it to fit this 5" x 7" card, cut a slip around the lower butterfly, and slipped the HM image inside. Add a sentiment and a bunch of jewels for sparkle, and voila! --- a lovey dovey card for your favorite couple.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the House Mouse Challenge to add your own and to take a look at all the great creations.

How did I miss this?!?! Man, I hate being so busy that I miss all the good stuff!!! Barb, this card is sublime!!! It is so very dreamy and delicate. I love the stunning vellum and the beautifully placed jewels. Gorgeous is what keeps popping into my mind, but doesn't seem to be a strong enough adjective to describe this striking creation. This has to be my all-time favorite card!!!
