House Mouse and Friends Monday ,, May Flowers Challenge

Hi all :-) I hope you al had a lovely weekend and spent Mother’s Day with your families :-)
We had a lovely time visiting all your 'Transport' creations , what a fab challenge it was and many of you were ingenious in your interpretation ,, lots of lateral thinking going on there :-)

It is time for a new theme on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and this time it is Sue K’s turn to choose the theme and she chose a lovely easy one :-)


We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 spree to the fabulous store for one lucky entrant :-)

For my card I used this lovely One Mouse Band stamp. I coloured with copics and inked the edges with stormy sky distress ink. The papers are Prima Sparkling Spring ( a gift from Scoopy and Joey from Crafty Emma’s Store xx) The flowers were made using Nellie Snellen Punch and Emboss set ,,, here's a close up ,, I love these ! I popped in some black pearls into the center :-)

and I used a Martha Stewart border punch. The sentiment is from SU and in retrospect I should have just added a bow instead ,,, I used some ribbon from my drawer and some star dust stickles and a few Robins Nest Dew drops o finish Smile

Thanks for looking , our fab new GD’s Esme and Nancy and the DT have all made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile
