So Sweet Mice


Hi everyone!  Today starts a new challenge at Pile It On which is being sponsored by Doodle Pantry.  The theme for this week's PIO Challenge #4 is animals.  For my card, I used a fun image and sentiment from Doodle Pantry's So Sweet Mice.  I used various Doodle Pantry digi papers to paper piece the image digitally.  Coloring was done with Irojiten pencils and Copics markers.  I used a Taylored Expressions banner die to create my banner and Spellbinders dies to frame the image and sentiment.  This card was a lot of fun to create and I'm happy with how it turned out.  Hope you like it too!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper January Challenge -- Use patterned paper on cards - anything goes
Aud Sentiment Challenge #98 -- Use any sentiment you like
The Crafting Cafe -- Anything Goes

Hope everyone has a great week.  Thanks for your visit and Happy Crafting!

  6. Adorable card, and I enjoyed reading about your digital paper piecing. Mind you, I haven't the slightest clue as to how this is done, but it sounds so intriguing. I've just begun to occasionally use digi-s, so I'm in the stone age! Loved the image & what a great way you used your digi papers for this cute little fella. Loving that dramatic chevron background too! TFS & Hugs (maybe one day you will do a tutorial on the digi paper piecing?)
