together we can do so much

I love how the sentiment in this card worked so well together with the vertical line of cute little mice, and this is thanks to the Fusion Card Challenge #13 design sketches, which have been combined in this card:

* after stamping the vertical line of mice, I placed the die-cut near the top portion of the vertical line, and die-cut the rectangle around the top mice and the third mice
* sentiment was stamped on the blue patterned paper and cut into a shape of a banner
* I then fussy-cut around the second mice on the left and right edges at width just enough for the banner to slide through
* a second larger rectangle was then die-cut in the red patterned paper
* after coloring the image in water-color, the rest of the mice were fussy-cut, and the whole thing put together, with the help of dimensional dots at the right places

The mice stamp is from Penny Black - Everest Next, whilst the sentiment comes form IO-impression obsession - Fabulous Friend clear stamp set.

Card was also submitted for Penny Black and More's July Challenge - "Dies and Punches" theme.
