Bee-utiful New Friends
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog is having a blog hop. Part of the requirements for winning the grand prize is that you must enter a "New Beginnings" House Mouse project. I've had this cute little stamp for a while now and had never used it. I decided to get it out and ink it up for the hop challenge. I had some scraps of my favorite October Afternoon papers for the matting and I "remembered" to sew my mats before I glued them all down. LOL Been doing quite a bit of swing on my cards lately. I love the look of it. Anyway, I sprayed a pair of white paper flowers with some glimmer Mist, colored the pearl with a Copic marker to match and added a little Perfect Pearls to their little bee wings for some shimmer. This card is how I feel about all the bloggie friends I've made this past year.
This card also fits the "New Beginnings" theme at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
Thanks for "hopping" in today! :-)
