HMFMC #144 "Feeling Blue"

I am totally honored to be a guest designer for May and June over at House Mouse and Friends Monthly Challenge.  You should all join in with us for this challenge because if you win you, too, could be a guest designer for a month.  It's fun and quite an honor!!!!
This week our challenge in "Feeling Blue" which means you can either use the color blue, or the feeling blue, or sad how ever you wish to interrupt it. So you have lots of ways you can go with this one.
  My little "sickie" scene is titled Mouse Drops.  I just think it's as cute as you can get.  I colored it with Copics, cut it out with SB dies and layered all that onto a large paper flower that was white and I spritz it with Sapphire Spritz to come up with a hint of blue.    The paper was in my stash and I'm sorry but I don't know who it is made by.  I went with a bunch of little flowers made from a Recollections punch and then added some little pearls from Pizzazz APlenty.  The sentiment is by My Sentiments Exactly. For the center point on the card, I double punched a strip of matching blue with a SU punch and added a couple of pearls there too.  Hope you like it and, as always,  thanks so much for stopping by for a little visit.  See you again soon.

    P.S. The paper looks familiar, is it Basic grey??

  16. Jacky, it may very well be Basic Grey, thanks for noticing. Sometimes a sheet does not get put back and then I'm lost as to who made it. Enjoy your day.

  17. Donna this is too cute. This would make anyone feel better. Very sweet.

  20. Hello fellow GD teammate. I love this card and the droppings from these adorable mice. LOL. I think your flower is so pretty. I have not purchased any color sprays before but after seeing how soft your flower looks, I just may give it a try. Lovin your card.

  23. Donna, this is sweet, sweet, sweet. That is one of my very favorite HM stamps. I have it somewhere but can't find it right now (I plan to clean my craft room really good now that the wedding is over - YAY). The touches of blue on this are wonderful and perfect. You are a wonderful choice as the GDT member! Hugz!
