Time for a new Challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
It's #147 and I got to choose the theme this time and I chose:
Anything Goes, plus use a charm.
Yep, you can use any House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper image
with the addition of a charm on your project or card.
I used this beautiful Butterfly charm, which is also a ribbon

Here is a close up of the image I chose.  It's a wood block stamp
Juggling Raspberries (HMTR1044)
Here is the finished card.
Scalloped punch is EK Success
Raspberries on the vine is a Sizzix Bigz Die
The sentiment circle is from taylored expressions, Berries and Cherries set
Papers are DCWV and Reflections
Colored with Copics
Ribbon is from Michael's

Sue this is darling. I love that your charm doubles as a ribbon holder. You surprised me with your die pieces, at first i really thought you had some three dimensional raspberries you highlighted them perfectly. Love that sentiment circle also. Very nice card.
