HMFMC145 Flower Power

Here's my card for the House Mouse Challenge HMFMC145 which is "Flower/Flour Power.  I went with flowers and used this adorable image with the mouse's nose buried into a sweet sprig of lilacs! I colored with Copics, and sponged the sky with tumbled glass ink, then covered with versamark and heat embossed with clear detail ep. I used Concord Crush and New Leaf green cardstock & ribbon. The sentiment is from SU! teeny tiny wishes and was done with 3 color coordinating jewel tag punches tied on with silver cording. I think I can almost smell those sweet lilacs now :)

Thanks for checking in and I wish you a wonderful Wednesday!

I think I smell those lilacs, too. Hmmmmm...I just recently gathered a bouquet for my neighbor (from her yard) to put in a vase. She is on crutches for several weeks and couldn't get to them. They smelled yummy.
I love your card and those three tiny tags are just so cute.

I hope you realize how much I learn from you, each and every time you post. From your coloring, the way you place little embellishments like the tags, even your gorgeous knots and bows, I love them all!

I sniffed out this card from way out here, Carol! You know how I am about lilacs! I swear, you always have the funnest and bestest images!! This is divine!!

This is nicely done...and the coloring is great (and yes I know PURPLE is your favorite color) looks so pretty here with that green color that you chose to go with it. I think I have an image that Jim colored for me with lilacs...(I know I'm fortunate) I need to go look for that...you have inspired me. Jill (who is melting with this humid weather)

Perfect timing, since the lilacs are just starting to bloom (here, at least). I love the cluster of three tiny tags--that is a nice touch.

Very pretty-my lilacs just got done blooming, so I can almost smell this along with the meecey! That pretty paper you used for the base is very striking too!
