Yummy Fall

I thought this cute little house mouse was perfect for the delights of Fall. I love the colours of Autumn and goodness, the fruits are so wonderful. Not that my garden produced much this year sadly, barely a blackberry did I have : (   My mousie is coloured with a combo a blendable pencils and water colour pencils, then cut out with a Nellie Snellen die cut, outlined with peel off pen. 

My paper flowers are made using the smaller scalloped die cut shapes. I cut in-between the scallops, half way to the centre, shaped each petal from underneath and then the centres from the patterned side. 

My leaves I really enjoyed making. I splodged the lacy bit of a doily (I wanted the filigree leaf look) with alcohol based pens, put the peel off's on and cut round them. I added some peel off's to my mats to set them off a little.  Oh, and coloured my buttons and ribbon with peel off pens (alcohol based). Hope I can find a 'use your old stash' challenge as those buttons had their card backing crumbling under them, they were left over from when the kids were little lol.

Wow Linda! Great card! Lots of yummy details on this! That was such a creative idea with those flowers. I have those circles, but would have never thought to use them as flowers. They are very pretty! This ribbon flower is pretty too! You always do such a nice job with peel offs. I have never mastered them!
