Sweet Tooth Mouse Card & Inspiration Saturday!

Hi! I thought I'd share a cute card using the September Challenge image from Gerda Steiner Designs - Sweet Tooth Mouse and then give you some crafty weekend inspiration to check out! I really meant to play along with the September challenge earlier this month.... where did September go?!! The cool thing about these challenges are that if you play along and link up you'll get the next month's digi image free! I printed off this adorable little mouse and coloured her up with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers (alcohol based) and then used a Kaisercraft Stitched circle die to cut out the image.

I used the Holiday Baking Mix & Match pad from Canvas Corp Brands to layer papers and corrugated cardboard on my card. I felt like this little mouse would be perfect as a Christmas mouse ready to give away some handmade goodies at the holidays!  This Mix & Match pad is gorgeous and includes papers, recipe cards, burlap, corrugated cardboard and a printed canvas panel - and it's on sale! 😉

I added some glittery Stickles to the batter and spoon and added some fun and sparkly SpiegelMom Scraps sequins!

Now for a bit of inspiration....
