Up, Up and Away! & peonies

Hello, all! Here is a card that I made for the Sunday Sketches #81 over at the PWCO Blog.


I used the adorable Up, Up and Away! from the Cutie Patootie collection for my card.


I colored the cute little mouse on PTI's Stamper's Select White with Copic markers then cut and embossed the piece using a Labels One die. It's then matted with a piece of patterned paper. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Large die then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Ovals Small die.


The patterned paper is from the Sweet Summertime collection by Echo Park and the sentiment from this set by Hero Arts.


I also made this tag for poppystamps blog. Please hop over to check out the details.

That's all I have for today. Have a great day, my friends! =)




Thanks for stopping by!
