Stop and Smell the Lilacs!

When I saw this house mouse image on Sue's blog I couldn't stop gushing over how adorable it was and Sue, being the sweet person she is, sent me some stamped images! Thanks Sue (hugs) !! If you'd like to see more of her fabulous house mouse images and so much more, be sure to stop by her blog Sue's Stampin Stuff .
I colored the stamped image with Tombows and matted it with black card stock. Next I used some Basic Grey Kioshi papers, and a little bit of PTI Soft Moss polka dot ribbon. After I cut the ribbon I found there were only a couple inches left on the roll, so I just added that piece on the corner to use it up, adding a button and some purple hemp. The sentiment is by CTMH, layered with the SU! word window and fancy label punches, and there are 2 square green gemstones on either side for interest. I'd like to be that mouse right now with my nose buried into some sweet smelling lilacs!
Happy Sunday everyone and thanks for stopping by :)
