Be Mine Heart and Sole / House Mouse

My craft room is clean and organized and I'm back to crafting! Just in time too to join in on this week's challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is to make a Valentine using a House Mouse or friend image on your valentine. I chose to use "Be Mine Heart and Sole" with Monica. I also decided to make a trifold card with a window.
This is the first opening showing the window from the front of the card now on the left and Monica on the right.
This view shows the card completely open with sentiment now showing. I left the far right of the card blank to be able to write my own special message. I also made a matching envelope with Monica also on it as shown above in the picture.

Supplies Used:
Stamp / Image: House Mouse "Be Mine Heart and Sole" by Stampabilities
Stamp / Sentiment: Hero Arts
Printed Paper: Heidi Grace Designs
Pink Cardstock: "Bling In The Pink" by Bazzil
Windows and scallops created with Spellbinder's Nestabilities
Hearts made with a Sizzix die
White pearl hearts by Hero Arts
Techniques: Image colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Gamsol

I'm happy to be back crafting away in my "clean" craft room! Be sure to take some time to check out the other fabulous valentines over at the House Mouse & Friends Challenge Blog!
