You Totally Rock! (CTD & Mercy)

I've been a posting fiend these past couple of days (unusual for me!) so...

If you're just here to see what's new or to check out the CTD and Mercy challenges then read on...
Today's card was designed for both the Color Throwdown Challenge #67

and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #46.

AFTER I got my card 80% done I realized that Mercy's sketch was a square and mine was not! AAACK -  but sketches are supposed to just be the general guidelines right!?!? (ok you would think by now I would be better at reading the fine details!)

I made a congratulations card for a special friend of mine who is celebrating a wonderful achievement. I wanted to make her something totally FUN and even a little wild/whimsical.

The happy mouse is from one of my favorite older SU! sets (can't remember the name and I'm too tired to climb back upstairs and look it up) - the sentiment is from GinaK's Tag Lines. The accent stamps that coordinate with the Vintage 4 nesties comes from WaltzingMouse Stamps - I LOVE them!  I didn't have any Durango paper but I had the kraft, sky and artichoke. I substituted GinaK's Pumpkin Spice for the Durango - hope it's close. I used my PaperTrey Guidelines set to create some DP of my own to go with this week's colors then I found scraps of some sky and artichoke DPs for my accent pieces.  Used a colorful brad on the focal image "frame" and added some pearl accents for the Mercy sketch but because I didn't make it square I was out of room and couldn't put all 3 at the top.

I hope my friend gets a BIG SMILE from this card. Thanks for visiting. I hope to see all of you on Saturday for our next Just Us Girls Challenge - we have a fun sketch for you this week.

Oh, goodness, Stampin' PAM! You are hilarious! I don't blame you in the least for not hunting for the name of that lil' stamp ~ he's adorable and soooooo perfectly does the job of mixing with that great sentiment and showing off your use of the Color Throwdown inspiration! We don't NEED his name to know that you ROCKED this challenge, or, uh, BOTH challenges! Fantastic!
