Spring is in the Air

Time for another challenge over at House Mouse and this fortnight our challenge is "Spring".
This seems very appropriate as at last this weekend we saw some sunshine and I even got washing dried on the line! This is my third card as a guest designer for the House Mouse team and I am loving joining their team xx

My image is from the House Mouse Spring collection called "Crocus". Just love how this little mouse is helping brighten up the flowers. I used a spellbinders die to showcase the image in and copics to colour the image. I inked the edges using a VersaMagic lilac chalk ink.
The sentiment is stamped using a Daisy and Dandelion stamp and another spellbinders die. The butterfly is is cut using a Cherry Lynn die - "Exotic Butterfly". The bow is tied using some net but I have no idea what it is called. I have the net in about 8 different colours and just love it. I added some tiny gems around the image border and the contrasting purple spotty ribbon and flowers. 
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
