I wanted to do a monochromatic card and decided on using only blue cardstock.  I chose the Blessed Mouse stamp from My Favorite Things.  I think it's a cute image, and I love the sentiments that come with it.  My mouse is colored with copics---no sparkle or embellishments on this card, which is quite unusual for me.

I did use a variety of Die-namics on this card.  They are all available at the My Favorite Things store I used these ones:

Rolled Mum
Monarch Border
Chevron Stripes
Mini Tabs Foursome

I really like their dies.  They are so easy to work with and they always cut clean edges.  Their stamps are also excellent.  I always get a nice clean stamped image.  My favorite stamps are from MFT--in case you couldn't tell.  LOL

Did you know that My Favorite Things are having a Guest Designer contest?  The winner gets to be the Guest Designer for August.  Be sure to check out this post for all the details.  Don't forget to take a look at all the entries, as they are usually awesome.

Lastly, I inked the edges of all the cardstock with broken china distress ink from Tim Holtz.  Then I embossed each piece of cardstock using a different cuttlebug folder, to add texture to the card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
