Mouse cupcakes

Hit three challenge blogs for this card with the wee mouse and her sweet treat.
She is the free image for the beginning of August, so if you 
don't have her, quick head on over to Delightful Inspiration.
while you are there check out the Saturday challenge...BLING!
Then for the Kraft Journal's "Carnival, Parades, Parties" challenge I added a piece of embossed 
kraft paper that I 'blinged' up with some Stickles.
The card base is a piece of Core-dinations...actually all the paper except the kraft is from the same piece of Core-dination paper. I even used it to paper piece the cupcake liner, then distressed it between the lines
with an old emery board.
OO,OOO her sweet wee face is...kraft paper, too!!!!
Used my Prismacolor pencils to color her ears and give her a bit of blush on her cheeks.
I love to see when crafters mix up the border punches, so I tried it for myself.
The sentiment came with the D2D set which also included a party guy mouse and another sentiment.
The 'core' paper is fab for the embossing folders, just a wee bit 'bleeds' out and if you want more of the 
'color' from behind just use an emery board or your distressing tool of choice.
Thanks for coming by!!!!

Well you sure got inventive on this card Joanne! :-) Great job of incorporating the kraft throughout the card and that cup cake liner that you distressed just looks fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing this with us this week at The Kraft Journal!

Very cute! I was looking at the embossing before I read your post and wondering how you inked it like that. I have to get some of that paper.
