House Mouse Monday Challenge

Interesting one this week for the House Mouse Monday Challenge it's Tall and Thin. I very rarely make a DL card but I had a go for this one.


Please click on pic for a better view.
I thought this Gruffie stamp would be perfect. It's called Tower of presents. I paper pieced the presents and added some details with sakura pens. Gruffie has been coloured with promarkers. All the papers are from a pad by GSD studio. The top and bottom strips have been punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. For the sentiment I used a Hero Arts clear stamp which I stamped onto the word window punch tag from SU. I then layered it onto two of the tags put together.

As always the DT cards are gorgeous you really should take a look at them here
