Think Spring

I know it is not spring just yet, but there is always wishful thinking, right? House Mouse and Friends challenge this week is to make a card that will "welcome spring". I hope this qualifies. This is my first House Mouse challenge. I used SU card stock, Lavender Lace and Whisper White. My designer paper is from one of SU's prints packs. The House Mouse stamp is titled Bird Watching. I colored it with Copics. I used both regular oval and scallop oval Nestabilities to mat the image. I sponged the edges of the image paper with Lavender Lace ink while it was still in the Nesti. I added white dots to the scallops with a White Gel Pen. I also uses a few pearl gems for some added bling. The sentiment stamp is from DeNami Designs. I stamped that in VersaMark and embossed with with some purple embossing powder. I used the corner rounder on all the layers of this card just to soften the overall look.

Thank you for spending a little time here today.
