Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog!  Today's post is a bit cheesy, LOL!  It's Team B's turn over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, and our awesome sponsor is Fabrika Fantasy.

Prize ~ 3 Images

Here is my card:

I used this cute Happy Mouse image.  He looks quite pleased with himself, don't you think?
Please click on the picture to enlarge it; I'm not sure why it looks so blurry here!    Anyway, I chose to use the pre-colored version, as you do get both pre-colored and uncolored versions in the file.  YAY!  I found this cheese cut file in the Silhouette Store, and modified it to suit my plan for the card.  It is originally a "whole slice," but I chose to cut it on a diagonal.  I also added what I hope looks like a bite mark (those 3 scallops close together).  I used Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Scattered Straw to color the cheese, which I had cut from Accent Opaque 120lb cardstock.  Before adhering the 2 layers of cheese together, I splattered the top layer with the leftover Scattered Straw ink mixed with water.  I also had to do some fussy cutting of the bottom layer so there wouldn't be weird looking edges when I offset the layers.

I asked my crafty Squirrel Sisters for advice on what sentiment to use, and they came up with several "cheesy " ones.  I liked this one the best, as I really do love cheese!  I printed that out and cut it with a banner cut file, also layering it up 2 times to add dimension.  The mouse has 4 layers altogether, as I wanted him to really stand out.

I inked the edges of the yellow cardstock layer with Fossilized Amber so it wouldn't seem so flat compared to the rest of the card.  Everything was adhered flat to the 5.5" square card base, and the card was finished!
