Buttons the Mouse

Sorry for the long absence...
Life has been rough, and I haven't been feeling very crafty lately, so haven't had much to share. Let's hope I'm breaking that streak with today's post!
It's my turn to share some new release inspiration on the YNS Blog, and I've got a clean and simple cutie for you!
This is Buttons the Mouse from the new Holiday Hugs set...
I just love him!!
I've been drawn to gold accents on cards lately... I know it's nothing new, but it only recently appealed to me.
I found some gold cardstock in an old Stampin Up! kit in my stash, and the gold string is DMC floss from my cross stitch stash! So fun to make use of these things!
The green pattern is a scrap of Doodlebug paper that I also found in my stash... it matched the bow around Buttons perfectly, so I designed my card around that piece!
Buttons is colored with Copics, and popped up on a Circle Die cut. I used a gold gel pen to color the little bell on the top of his hat.
Skin - E43, E42, E41
Ears, Nose, Tummy - R30, R000, R0000
Bow, Green Stripes - G07, YG09, YG07, YG06, YG11
White Stripes - T1, C00
I have a few challenges I'm entering this into:
 The Cutie Pie Challenge - Buttons (okay... this might be a stretch, but the mouse's name is Buttons!)
Well, that's about all for now... hopefully I'll see you back here real soon!
Thanks for stopping by!!
