A Message from Mouse

The Clipart Fairy has some new kits featuring cute little mice, and I have been having a play with some of them.
I had to use this one first as it contains my favourite colours of blue and purple. I also received my new Joy Crafts Plate stand die a couple of days ago, and couldn't wait to use it so this is the card I came up with.

Mouse and papers - A Message from Mouse Kit - Clipart Fairy
Plate stand - Joy Crafts Die - cut from silver card
Grand Circle die - Spellbinders 
Scalloped Die- Marianne Creatables frame flowers circle LR0112
Blue circle Die - Marianne Creatables double frame and swirls LR0141
Flowers - X-Cut punches
Ribbon, purple stick on pearls, gems and sequin blossom - Meiflower

I used various dies to cut out all the different sections of the card, attached the scalloped layer to the circle with double sided tape and then after threading and wrapping ribbon around the centre section fixed it into place with foam pads.I cut around the mouse image leaving a white edge and then used the decoupage included in the kit to layer up the bouquet of flowers.
The flowers were punched out, shaped and layered, then I added a purple sequin blossom to the centre of each, and tiny orange gems to the centres of the larger flowers in the bouquet. I placed a purple pearl between each scallop and fixed a message panel to the reverse for adding a written greeting.

I'll be back over the next couple of days with a few more mice cards.

Thanks for stopping by,
Colette xx

Beautiful - as usual!
You have given me a great idea - I usually wrap ribbon around a thin circle frame, but it is quite fiddly to get the ribbon neat, the Marianne Die looks so much easier -off to buy one now, thanks for the inspiration.
