Chillaxin'

I love House Mouse stamps and, when the smashing Rusty sent me some stamped images, I just had to do something with this one.   The background paper is from DCWV Linen Closet and the flower I picked up from a dollar store in Canada. I coloured the edges of a Craftworks Card with a Promarker pen to tone with the paper.  A big thanks to Melissa who keeps a brilliant list of current challenges.
