Glutinous Mouse...

OMGosh!  This image by the sponsor Doodle Pantry was the focus of my card this go around... and then I found this sentiment (a freebie from Ginger's House) and the whole concept clicked for me on a personal level!  I LOVE cherries and I can hog out (mouse out doesn't seem to work) to the point I can make my self sick... I mean SICK!  (TMI)
Bottom line - love that sentiment, especially with this image.
I made this card for the new Monday "3-D" Challenge for Craft Your Passion.   Check out the details of the rules, some uber examples by the Design Team and enter your own card before next Sunday night by clicking HERE.

For my background I used a cherry image digi paper that came with the focal image from Doodle Pantry.  I added the Washi tape at the bottom and the top.  The image was printed out twice, colored with Copics and certain cherries were fussy cut, sculpted and added to the top with foam tape to achieve the 3-D look.   I should have 3-D'd his fat tummy!  The focal image panel has had embossed lines added all around the edges to create a frame and then three nail heads added to the corner for balance.  The punched sentiment element and it's mat were finally layered in with the focal image panel.

This card should be eligible for the following
Clear it Out - International (red and white for Canada's flag and cherries from our North West states) plus Washi tape
