Sending Happy Thoughts

Hi - back with one of my favourite House Mouse stamps. It's from the Love set called "Snuggle up"
Love greens and lilacs together so I coloured the image with muted shades of each using copics. I used my circle spellbinders die to showcase this cute image.
Here is my finished card. The backing paper is embossed and glittery but doesn't show well with my photography. The large flower is created using a spellbinders -cut, fold and tuck die. Its a die I don't use much but should as I love the effect. All pearls, lace, flowers and papers are from the HobbyHouse. The sentiment says "Sending Happy Thoughts Your Way". I'm sure with all the tragic events going on in this world we could all enjoy a bit more happiness. Sending all my blogging friends much love and happiness. xxx

What a precious card. I really love that image also and use it quite often myself. I like that you sponged the edges of your circle. It gives it a dimensional look. Love that cut and fold from SB. I've watched it being used on SB site, but you are the first person I've actually seen use it. You did a nice job layering your flower on it. All and all a super card. Thanks for playing along with us here at House Mouse & Friends this week.
