Garden Party

Yay for me, this is the second week I have completed the challenge over at Delightful Inspiration so I will get the digi from Designed to Delight to play along next week. I saw a preview of it and it is gorgeous. Thankyou Faith, I am enjoying taking part and need to make a concerted effort to do every week if I can.

This card and image are so me :) Lovely bright colours and just look at the cute little meeces <3 I used a sketch from Paperminutes for the layout of the card.

I decoupaged the mice and cupcake, the bee and one of the flowers. I also enlarged the bee and added those as an embellishment to the card.

The papers are from the Woodland Friends pad by Papermania. I thought the bright little flowers would match the image well. I used a punch from Martha Stewart on the purple spotty paper and a new Nestabilities die on the image. I went to a cardmaking show at the Motorcycle Museum in Coventry and managed to get few sets of nesties I wanted for only £14 each, even got some of the new ones :) The image is of course coloured with Promarkers and I have distressed the edges of that and the DP with a small black ink pad.

I added a gorgeous flower lace (which was hard to use I can tell you....) a sentiment from my stash and loads and loads of gems.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical order) :-
