Good morning! It is cold here with snow on the ground! It was 1 degree this morning, Brrrr! I have created this card for 5 challenges.

Moving along with the times #82-a sketch and use flowers
House Mouse #87-embossing
Truly Scrumptious #49-brown, green and pink
Basic Grey #36 -flower power and DT call
Stamp Something-Something cute

The Basic Grey papers that I used are from the porcelain paper pad and sugared/attractive. The house mouse stamp was colored with Copic markers. The saying is StampinUp. I sponged pink around the image and stamped flowers around the edge by Sandylion. The image is cut with the Cuttlebug using the label Spellbinder. For the embossing for the House Mouse Challenge, I embossed the flowers and cut them out. I embossed the light pink flowers with light pink embossing powder on the green and the pink flowers are clear embossed on the pink cardstock. I think that we reach for the pre-made flowers a lot when we can make out own! I added punched leaves and gems and a ribbon. Thanks for stopping by!
