House mouse cuteys!

I absolutely love my house mouse stamps, so much so that if anymore would like to live with me then they would be made very welcome!

I made this card to keep me out of trouble this afternoon. I am always very critical of my cards to the point I won't even admit that I have been crafting if I do not like the card that I have made let alone blog it! However this one I absolutely love!!

I have used Basic Grey Kioshi papers, added glossy accents to the raindrops and finished the card off with lace (Thankyou Karen) and some flowers which were a mixture of prima (small & medium ones) and the big one was a bargain buy from Calico crafts!

So I guess what I should do is show a picture!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

Creative Craft world - Challenge #4 - Primas (the small green ones and the greyish purple ones are primas!)

Such an adorable House Mouse image, and the papers you have chosen are perfect. The soft greens and lilacs go so well together, and the flowers and lace are a beautiful finishing touch.
