Good morning my crafty friends
It's that time of the month again (no not that time ha ha), it's house mouse time.
This is my latest DT card for Gruffies and Guests challenge blog. This months challenge is Spring so I chose this lovely image from the house mouse tripple cd set of this cute mouse paddling his way on the water.
I use co ordinations card stock for the back layer and left it plain then embossed some green mirri board and then another piece of the co ordinations card stock but this time embossed and then sanded it and layered it onto the mirri board.


      

 Then I decoupaged the image,which never shows up well in a photo


Then I made a stopper as this is a easel card from layers of white card then the pink co ordinations card which I then punched a edge on it from a Martha Stewart edging punch and layered it with green mirri board and some more co ordinations card that again I embossed and sanded in the same pattern.


Then I added a bow in a matching green


Then I made these daisies from a pink card,I like to use a light weight card as it means I can shape the petals to stand up. Then I used some yellow buttons to match the yellow in the centre of the main flower in the image
And finally I made the sentiment at the bottom of the card by typing out a sentiment in green writting and printed it out and layered it onto some more green mirri card.

I hope you like the finished card and that it has inspired you to pop over to http://gruffiesandguests.blogspot.co.uk/and enter this months challenge. Our sponsor this month is http://www.disdigistamps.com/ and they are giving a £10 voucher to the winner,so show us your talent
