Mickey Mouse Cards!

This post is to wish Bonnie a very Happy Birthday! Her friend asked me to make her a set of Mickey Mouse cards for her birthday! I had a ball with this one!!!

This mickey card uses a scalloped piece I found in that never-ending odds and ends bin! The little blue mickey circles are actually punched from.....JUNK MAIL! It was a disney credit card offer I received in the mail....there was some pretty fancy paper in that pile that didn't quite make it into the recycling bin! I was so glad I had saved it!!

I kept the design of these cards simple...and the Copic coloring very basic....I wanted the card to be focused on Mickey.

I created my own background paper on this one, stamping a little mickey stamp in a similar shade of ink and paper. I have some fun buttons from Fun Expressions....one just had to pop onto this card!!

Oh! ...and remember that credit card offer?! You guessed it!! I harvested that baby well!!
I stamped my sentiment on the privacy envelope! Another sassy button popped onto this card.

And while I've never been to Disney myself...I always think the white castle looks so pretty! I used the *castle* from SU!'s Provencal set for my very own disney castle! I used the crayon resist technique to keep my castle nice and white! The sky is actually a touch blue, though it doesn't show in this photo very well. The mickey is a punch and the HB is for Happy Birthday and is a Cuttlebug Tag Sale alphabet die.
So, that is it for today....pop on back tomorrow to see Minnie Mouse!!

I'm online looking for inspiration for a Mickey card and you've done just that. I can now adjust some of these designs as I'm going to use some photos I took during my Florida holiday this year.
Thanks so much for being there :-)
