Hello There Friday Mashup

Hi Friends

Happy Monday ... I hope you're planning a fun week.  Today's card is for those occasions when you want to send someone a greeting to cheer their day but it's not their birthday or any other event.  So, the gals over at the Friday Mashup challenged us to do just that... make a "hello" card.  But, to mash it up, the challenge also includes adding sequins.  It's a fun challenge ... you should play along too.  It always takes me a while to "ponder" what I'm going to create so I end up looking a lots of my stamps to decide.   I haven't used this little House Mouse stamp in so long and he just popped out of the basket into my hands.  Love that!!

I wasn't quite sure where sequins were going to be added, but started by coloring the mouse and his little friend with Copics.  The base card is whisper white, the blue was some I had on hand from another card, the yellow layer is daffodil delight and the sequins are a million years old from my stash.  I used SU's marina mist chevron ribbon, a little strip of yellow and my sentiment is from SU's Happy Day. 

My cards are sort of like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates... I never know what I'm going to get... but this time I am thrilled with the way this turned out (if I do say so myself).  I hope you like it too and thanks for the visit.
Be back soon - hope you are too!
