Guest Designer for House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge - "Stop and Smell the Flowers"

Good Morning my Friends!
Today is my last card as Guest Designer for House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge Blog. and my first card is for challenge #239 "stop and smell the flowers". I have used the fab gruffie stamp I won from one of the previous challenges for this card as it is perfect!

I stamped the image onto white cardstock and used a Clarity Stamp stencil with Distress Inks for the background. I then used a watercolour brush and Distress Inks to colour the Gruffie and flowers. To finish I added faux stitching and punched leaves and flowers with pearls for extra decoration.

I have entered my card in the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments Designs: Flowers (weekly)

Thanks for looking and don't forget to join in with the
new challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog!

Hi Sarah, what a darling card. Love the stenciled background and the colors you chose. This Gruffie smelling the Lilac flowers is so darn cute. Great color combo too. Hope you enjoyed designing along with us as much as we loved having you as a guest designer. Thanks for all your wonderful cards and inspiration.
