HMF#145 Flower power

Happy Monday! The new challenge this week for the House Mouse and Friends Blog #145 is Flower or Flour Power. Your host this week is me, Stacy! When I thought up this challenge I thought that I had a different stamp for this using Flour, however I should look closely as it was coffee beans not flour. ACK!!! So I went with Flower for this challenge. ha! Be sure to check out the blog for prizes and sponsors today!

I stamped Poppy Cot onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink. Colored with various copics. Layered the mouse panel onto another layer of classic white cut out using a spellbinders die. Added some crochet lace and ribbon underneath and tied a bow using jute twine and a button. Two simple rhinestones to the corner and voila! I adore how this turned out so crisp and clean feeling. Hope you can play along this week! Have a great day.

Stacy first off thank you for picking a fun topic for this challenge. I absolutely love the color of your flower and ribbon. All the white really makes the orange pop. Gorgeous coloring on the image and your button and gems just add to the overall look. Love the piercing also.
