I chose Pearls - Image - Flowers. Sorry it was the easiest row for me, Memorial Day weekend, BBQ here with family and being the Mommy and feeding a baby goat every 3 hours it was just best...
Ok, so I used Crissy Armstongs image "Free Ride". He is just totally adorable don't you think? LOL I colored with my copies, then I cut out the balloon to the point of where my Circle Nestie was - cut out my circle. Then went to work on my card. I cannot tell you how bad I did NOT want to cut this paper... but then I saw this little mouse and decided it was worth it... LOL - I LOVE this paper... My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody collection. That floral paper is just gorgeous! If I could get this paper in wall paper I would so do a room in my house! Ok, so I cut into the paper, stacked up patterns sewed things together. Then I punched out two Whimsy Double Scallop border die - I just got it... so I HAD to use it right away :0) Do you love the weaving holes or what??? I cut strips of the matching paper and used it like ribbon, that way it would match perfectly. I sewed the borders in place and then I added Veva Decor Pearl Pen in Cream color to create lots of little "Pearls" on each border. My mouse and balloon were matted and then attached. I popped the balloon up with foam pop dots, then added two layers of dimensional glaze so my balloon would be really shiny and really pop out! Love how that came out.
Here is the cute little mouse up close -
Then I went to the inside, more of the same pattern papers, and then since I also just got the Double Scalloped Doily die... I had to use it on the inside ready for any type of sentiments - for any need.
It sat on my desk for about an hour... before I remembered the flowers! OH MY I forgot the flowers... so I dug through my drawer of flowers and found a few that matched the pattern paper with some Martha Stewart Frond leaf punches.
