It's a (broken) Mouse Tail

     When I saw this digi over at QKR Stampede, I knew I wanted to use it but couldn't figure out exactly where or how.  So, when the opportunity arose for a Twisted Thursday at Outlawz challenge without an assigned image, I decided it was the perfect opportunity and made another "Get Well" card for my stash.

     Our theme is always "Anything Goes" and this week our optional twist is "Texture."


      The image is colored with ProMarkers and fussy cut by hand.  I used a Darise embossing folder on black CS to make the frame, then sanded the embossing so that the white core shows through.  The one word sentiment is my own.  I added the blue bow for a bit more texture and called it finished, a nice CAS design.

So darn cute. I wonder if that happen to little mice often? Love that die and the way you rubbed it to show the core paper. Fun, fun, fun.
