2 More Challenge Cards

It's Mojo Monday and boy did I struggle with today's card. I like the sketch, I just had a hard time settling on the stamp for the center layer. I think it's all because I have way, way, way too much other work to do to justify stamping. And perhaps there was a bit of guilt there, even some stress starting to mound. But oh well, what's done is done.
What I do like about the card are the colors and the designer paper. The paper is from the Parisian Breeze Specialty collection. I love the texture and colors (baja breeze, chocolate chip and kraft). I use sanded on the baja breeze layer (inked with the same color.. The flower is from Heartfelt Thanks and the sentiment from Cheep Talk.







I made this card yesterday for Jen's sfytt challenge. The house mouse stamp is called Confetti Rain 2 and is a stamp my sister Becky gave me a couple of years ago. It was lost in my stash (I remembered it after Becky's visit). The paper and ribbon are two of the free products from Stampin' Ups Sale-A-Bration. The paper and ink colors were chosen to match the colors in the designer paper: certain celery, so saffron and bashful blue.


I'm sure I left out some other details, but paper work, dishes, and laundry are among the things calling me right now. The paper work is in stacks all around me, so I think I will walk out of this room, shut the door and do anything but that on my list. Surely that will count!
