House Mouse Love

Had some play time today and decided to make a Valentine’s card using one of my favorites – House Mouse!  I created the card base using Marianne Designs Rectangle Frame die, layered on red cardstock.  I cut a second middle section, trimmed it a little smaller, and ran it through a floral embossing folder.

The image was colored with Tombow markers.  I cut it out, leaving a small edge all around, and popped up these sweethearts on the card front. 

I hope all of you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
