Love "Cat and Mice" - AHSC #222

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #222. Join this have until Sunday, July 30th to enter your project. 

Looking through my dies Paper Smooches "Cat Icons" was my choice and looking at the sketch saw the cat in the upper frame and then three little mice in the lower frame. Cut two layers for the Cat and Mice and between layers put white cardstock behind the eyes, and inked in a pink nose.  

Back awhile ago through Peachy Cheap I purchased My Mind's Eye packet that included 6 x 6 design papers, stickers and some PML cards. Chose a pretty floral pattern for my background paper and then a brick wall for the two frames and a splash of dots between the frames and cut black cardstock as a layer to the back of each of the design papers.    

From the stickers I used the balls of yarn for the two circles and Love for my sentiment. Cut my frames and layers. This is not common for me but all these decisions even before putting the card together ... and it actually all fell in place with no changes from my original choices. 

The design team reveal for this sketch will be on Wednesday, so be sure to stop by to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team and other entrant inspirations for this challenge...and stop by every Monday for new sketches. Don't wait for the DT post to create your us up with your artwork.

Paw Prints were die cut and adhered to the bottom corner of the inside, along with a strip of the splash of dots along the border.

I love the 3 little mice in the left corner... they go so perfectly with the cat. Great colour scheme! Such a basic sketch turned into such a detailed card - just your style :)
