This Card Drove Me Crazy!!

Ever have one of those cards that just doesn't turn out the way you want? You keep adding more and more things hoping that it will make the card better...but, you're just not happy with the result? That was this card!!! At the end I was satisfied...but, you should have seen the many different versions this card went through!!! Anyway, here's what I ended up with:

The blue piece on the top is half of a paper punched from a Marvy scalloped oval punch (mounted on double stick foam). I punched a 1/8" hole on the bottom edge of the scallop and threaded a ribbon through the hole to tie the hanger on. The saying (#5055 - Laugh Out Loud) is also mounted on double stick foam. I used a small rectangle punch to make slots to thread the blue ribbon through...then secured the ribbon with tape on the back. The mouse (#1103 - Happy Mouse) is bouncing off the card with a fine silver wire (wrapped around a pencil to make it "boingy"...that's a word, right?).

One last note...that flower on the bottom is made with a flower brad and a photo anchor. The photo anchor started off with a pewter, I painted it green to look like a leaf.

Have a great day everyone!!!
