A House Mouse Birthday Card.


I've fallen in love with these little creatures.  This birthday card is for my beautiful daughter-in-law over in Canada. I know I'm going to use this particular stamp, Exciting Celebration, quite a lot.  They stamp so beautifully.  The background paper is from Pink Petticoat, the image fitted perfectly onto a Nestability large oval scallop.  I used a MS border punch for the white trim and decorated it with pearls and lavender real silk ribbon.  The flourish is a Mariannes Designs I bought recently from Crafts U Love and I cut it out on some pistachio card printed from the same set as the gingham.  Most of the papers from Pink Petticoat do compliment each other.  Promarkers for the image and a Craftworks Card's sentiment mounted onto the ovals from the trusty SU punches and pearls and guipure lace leaves from my stash.  Just got to make a sturdy box for travelling now.  Thank you, Sarah, for these beautiful flowers.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges
 One Stop Craft Challenge # 82 Swirls and Pearls
Quirky Crafts Challenge Girly Girl
Passion for Promarkers Challenge - Week 53
Stampavie and More Challenge # 96

Hi Jenny! Mr Linky is working over on Quirky Crafts now, I'm putting in the cards I can, but I don't know your email, so if you'd like to add it to Mr Linky that would be lovely but don't worry if you don't it will still be counted!
