Trick or Treat Mice

To create this card I used Stamps: House Mouse Attentive Friend, Mudpie Tells.  Daisy and Dandelions Aubergine and Pumpkin.  Sizzix Happy Halloween.  Card stock: White hammered, green, orange glittered.  Papers: DP Reminisce Sweet Tooth.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black.  Tim Holtz Distress.  Colouring: Copic markers.  Dies: Nellies Multi Frame.  Punch: X-Cut decorative.  Embellishments: Green wire.

Hints and Tips
Mix and match your stamp sets to get more out of them. I didn't have a Halloween House Mouse stamp so I used a pumpkin and haunted house from other sets to create a Halloween image.

I created this bow by using black Stazon ink to stamp onto the ribbon.  The spider web button was created from black shrink plastic.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Sketch and Stash: Challenge 47. The House Mouse stamps are the new stash.
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Challenge 114 Sweet Treats with a Twist.
