House Mouse Challenge #125

     Our favorite little mice are celebrating the 2012 Olympics.  How awesome that the HM team has decided to join in the fun!


     I used the stamp called Patriotic Wrap.  My background is printed from a Google search, and my sentiment is from Ginger House digitals.  This was great fun to color, and I decided to do the left hand mouse with an Olympic scarf, and use my creative freedom!  LOL!  Coloring was done with Copics and I created my little version of medals (gold, silver, bronze) with Brilliance inks, Stickles, and an SU! circle punch.  I used some sparkly brads and gold cording as accents.

     Please find time to visit the House Mouse Monday Challenge Blog, and check out all of the creative Olympic creations they have come up with!  Go USA!
