Another House Mouse card :-)

I made this card ussing one of my lovely new House Mouse stamps from Simon Says Stamp,, this one is called Bed of Flowers and was the stamp of the month for April :-)



I followed the fabulous sketch on the Card Patterns Challenge
I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with stormy sky distress ink. I added star dust stickles to the image and Prima flower. The papers are MME and DCWV Neutrals stack for matting the sentiment is from SU. I used a Martha Stewart boder punch and SU oval punches



This card is for my SIL who is retiring from teaching at the end of this term, her fave colour is green so I had to use alot of it :-)

I am entering this into the Corrosive Challenge too whose theme is Die Cuts

thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

You still have a few hours left to join in the HM&F Monday Challenge and hop so if you haven't joined in already you had better get a move on :-)

I have a lovely candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)

Fabulous card, Lorraine! Your colouring is perfect as usual, your image so cute and I love the sparkle! Gorgeous flowers and great sentiment too... I wish I could retire from teaching (though I really like it), I would maybe get a beautiful card like yours and I would have more time to make cards :-)! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
