Stella Says Sketch Challenge + CTMH Card Workshop 11/18

Starting with a sketch makes cardmaking so much easier.  Today I'm using Sketch #219 from the Stella Says Sketch Challenge at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog and a Christmas Mouse Ornaments digi from Bugaboo Stamps.

I used paper scraps from 4 different patterned papers, haphazardly cut into pieces, glued together, and then embossed with a tree pattern (You have to look closely and maybe squint a little bit to see it.)  so I could also enter this in the Month of Holiday Cards Challenge at Beccy's Place.

I am entering this card in these great challenges:
Clear It Out Challenge - Anything Goes/Anything Goes from your stash (Actually, everything came straight from my stash today.)
Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge - 2 or more patterned papers (I've used 5.) 
Cutie Pie Challenge #81 - Festive Furry Friends
Love to Create Challenge #142 - Make it for Christmas 

Here are the cards I made at Joyce's CTMH Card Workshop this afternoon:

I might be adding some glitter and a bit more bling to a couple of these.


  1. Love it ...Thanks for playing with us @ CIO CHALLENGE BLOG...STOP BY AGAIN

  2. OMGoodness - this is sooooo cute! Love this sweet mouse, Debi! Now I must look in my files to see if I have this cutie myself! Great workshop cards too - you must have so much fun with this group of ladies!

  3. I love how you've done the background Debi, what an awesome way to use up scraps!!! It's really clever to emboss over the top of all the pieces, that helps to give all the different papers a cohesive look. I'm definitely adding this to my list of ideas for using up scraps! Thank you for the inspiration.
