Balancing Act w/Stripes for HMFMC

Stripes or Dots and Anything Goes for House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  I went with stripes for this one.  I had some leftover stripes paper from a card kit, and it all just worked with this cute little image. 

And yes, perhaps my twine gives a striped element. 

How many months until the swirly, twirly season and the cards need to be sent.  I'm stocking up when I can. 

Cheers - I hope you find some time to create today. 


Supplies Used - Swirly Twirly Christmas
Stamps and Dies:  Balancing Act House Mouse (Stampendous); Elfed (Pink by Design);
Ink & Embossing:  Versafine Black Onyx Ink, Various Distress Inks (Ranger), Midnight (Catherine Pooler Inks)
Paper: Cardstock and Pattern Paper (The Stamps of Life), Watercolor Paper (Canson)
Other: Sparkling Clear Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh); Glitter Foam Heart and Twine (The Stamps of Life)

Martini Required for AAA Cards

The challenge at AAA Cards . . . was a tricky one.  It was one (sentiment) plus three, and here were the elements that I chose: 

The optional theme was "friends".  And clearly you need your friends to help you reach that rim of the martini glass.

 My sentiment, plus three sequins, my stamped House Mouse image colored with my Zig pens. 

And I tried to keep it CAS. 

I hope you find some time to create today.
