Color Hues #16

Today's card was inspired by the latest color duo over at the Color Hues challenge blog where they've chosen the 2021 Pantone colors of the year.

I'm still having fun with Anita Jeram's darling critter images and based my card upon a grey mouse.  I apologize for the less than stellar photo.  It took on a green tint and really doesn't do the card justice.

I began by stamping out the image which included both the mouse and sheet of paper.  I colored them with Copic markers and then ran the panel through my die cutter with an embossing folder to create the border.  I double matted the panel with patterned paper, one in yellow and one in grey.  Yellow gems were added as a finishing touch.
