For my card I used the lovely Playing Dress Up House Mouse stamp. I love all my stamps but this one is a special fave ,, I have used this cutie ALOT !! I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey from the Capella paper pad and beige coredinations. I used a Martha Stewart border and a leaf punch and the flower is a Prima Lilliput rose ,,GORGEOUS!! I used a little American Tag hemp twine and a heart charm, a few Robins Nest Dew drops and an organza bow to finish :-)

For my card I used the very cute One Mouse Band House Mouse stamp. I coloured him with copics and decoupaged the 'trumpet' flower, I inked the edges with Dusty Concored distress inks.The papers are new Papermania Henbury Lane ones and purple coredinations which I sanded. The ribbons were in my stash. I used my gorgeous new Nellie Snellen flower and emboss punches to make the flowers and used blue moon glass pearls in the center.
