Good Monday Morning.  Time for another House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!
The challenge this time is to make a card or project with an Aperture.  An Aperture is an opening, such as a hole, gap or slit. The theme for this challenge was suggested by our teammate, Chirstine.

Here is a picture of the Aperture I created on my design team card.

I used this sweet image, which was a gift from our team leader, America, thanks friend!

Here is my completed card.  I colored with Copics. Sponged the edge.  Papers are by
My Mind's Eye and the music is by Echo Park.  The flowers and leaves are by Prima.  I used gold dew drops in the center of the flowers and on the corners.  I used a white Sharpe Paint Pen to add snow to the little scene.

This is what it looks like when you open the card!

Hope you will have a chance to join us this challenge.  For some other examples of Aperture, visit the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge site to see the wonderful cards the design team came up with. There is also a prize of a House Mouse Stamp.
The challenge begins today and ends January 2, 2011!
