Happy Hugs

Hi, and happy Monday to all!  I am a happy girl today, I just won a The Stamps of Life stamp set randomly from Katie Koenig's blog during the Lily Pad Cards Birthday Blog Hop.  Thanks so much Katie!  Now, onto today's card:


I used Penny Black's Hugs transparent set for for the mice and the sentiment.  I love that set, there are so many sweet images and little extras.  The paper is My Mind's Eye "Tres Jolie".  The ribbon is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby's Brand).  I used Ranger Distress Ink and Copics on the image.  I mounted the image and frame with foam adhesive.  The edging is a Martha Stewart punch.

Those are happy little mice, aren't they!?

This card is entered in the following challenges:

Hope everyone has a great day!
