Congratulations! Please email me your address so I can ship out your prize.


Thanks sooooo very much to ALL YOU House Mouse & Friends lovers that joined us for our New Beginnings Blog Hop!!! And another big THANK YOU for leaving your comments. I read each and every one of them.



Now here's my card. I heat embossed all stamping using black pigment ink and clear detail embossing powder. The card front is covered with a sheet of velum that has been dry embossed with an embossing folder run through my Cuttlebug.



All the flowers are painted with Liquid Pearls using an Aqua painter brush. Nice and shimmery. Monica, flower stems, leaves and touches on the flowers are colored with Prismacolor pencils. I colored around the image with white colored pencil.

I tilted the card in the light to try and capture the shimmer of the flowers.


Hope you can join us for the challenge!!!
