{"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable CONFIDENCE in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy."}
The challenge put to the design team over at Dutch Dare Card Challenge for 22 April was to create an easel card and to repeat something on it. I have been admiring these easel creations on the net for quite some time now, but just did not have the guts to attempt it. But at last I tried my hand it and I must say I just love this differently shaped card. It could also be a great way to scrap and display a photo (note to self). You can find the instructions for an easel card over at Splitcoaststampers. Then of course I could not help myself and went overboard with repeating the felt buttons.
.... and don't you think the little mice choir is just so adorable? Love the poor little one whose still tryin to find the notes on the music sheet ... ha ha ha
I am also entering this card at the following challenges:

  18. Hi Desire!
    I absolutely adore your card. The mice are so cute! (IRL I am scared to death of mice :P )especially the poor little thing that can't find the right notes. Kitty looks very serious, so I hope mousy will find the notes soon enough, before kitty gets angry hahaha...
    Love the sentiment/quote as well.
    A well, the whole card is just darling :)
    In the end they aren't as hard to make as they look, are they?

    Love, Monica
