HMFMC #164 Anything Goes

Today is the mid week reminder over at House Mouse & Friends   My teammates had some fantastic inspiration last week, but I invite you to stop by again this week to view some more great cards.  My Mojo takes a winter vacation every year (just about once every season lately,  LOL)  and in the event yours did also, maybe we can help your MoJO to come back home.   Anything Goes is the easiest kind of challenge and one we can all have fun with.  Here is what I came up with.
The image is titled "Anybody Home" and I just love it. The honeycomb embossed horizontal strip is SU's Almost Amethyst but it looks blue in the photograph.  I can't tell you how many pictures I've taken of this card, but I finally just had to settle for this one.  I colored the image with Copics and sponged a little bit of a sky there with Bashful Blue ink by SU!.  The green paper is also SU!, retired, as are the flower stamps.  I stamped them in Versa Mark and embossed them in black powder.  I added some Liquid Pearl Drop to the centers.  The sentiment is by DeNami Designs.  The fence is made with a MS Punch.   That is about it for this card,  but I am really excited about seeing what you come up with.
Besides having some fun making a card, you could win some great prizes.  Check it out, please.

  2. Beautiful Spring card, Donna! Love the soft colors and sweet image!

  3. Adorable card Donna. That is the sweetest of images, it looks like the chick is about to have a peck at what he thinks is a worm xx
