Hey there cookie!

Hey there cookies!!! This months challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique Blog is a photo inspiration challenge ...

... aren't they just gorgeous enough to eat?  I drew inspiration from the colours, flowers and teacups to come up with this card ...

a close up of the flowers - the circle flower is made from cuttlebug circle dies and I used a broad tip embossing tool in a circular motion to the front of the patterned paper so it would curl up a bit and then assembled it with a brad
 
and the little mouse poking out of the teacup!
 
I have made this card for the Stamp Spot - whose March Spots this month are use green, brads and twine.
I have followed the sketch from Card Patterns #158 and have followed the challenge set by Paper Sundaes - spring blossoms.
materials - AC pacific card, white cardstock, Bazzill parakeet; Jillibean Soup 'spotted owl' papers, Inky Antics 'teacup mousie #2' stamps; StazOn timber brown ink, Versa Color sky blue ink; Spellbinder standard circles large nesties; Provocraft cuttlebug circle dies; Twinery twine; Basic Grey 'urban prarie' large brad; Kaisercraft pearls; broad tip embossing tool; Crayola colouring pencils; Fiskars round the bend punch; Queen & Co. felt flowers.
Thanks for looking.
