Blueberry delight!

This House Mouse stamp is titled "Blueberry Delight" and this little fellow certainly looks like he's taking much delight in his dessert. This week's House Mouse and Friends challenge #97 is to use lots and lots of bling and to adorn your card with jewels.

For my card I pulled out my light blue crystals for the scalloped oval edges as well as on the bottom right. Then I used a 'diamond' centered brad in the middle of the polka dot blue bow at the upper right corner. But you know me.....I just have to add as much sparkle to my cards as I possibly can so each blueberry has a tad of blue stickles glitter on them as well as being covered with clear dimensional glaze to give shine and texture.

I used my cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder for the white panels and my paper crimper for the center blue panel. The dark blue cardstock is actually a metalic blue high shine cardstock but I'm not sure you can see that from the photograph. I matted the panels with Kraft cardstock. The image is stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black in and then colored with Copic markers.

OK...I can't stand it anymore. I've just got to get in the kitchen and make a bluebery pie or torte or something! This little guy is making me hungry.

Until next time!
