House Mouse Sweet Lilacs

Now that it's turning a bit chillier, I thought I'd share a card that reminds me that Spring will be with us at before too long!
House Mouse Sweet Lilacs
Card Recipe:
Tools: Tonic Studios Indulgence Boudior Square Base DieSquare Layering DiesScallop Square Layering DiesEvery Day Sentiments 1 DiesGrand Calibur
Digi Stamp: House Mouse Triple CD - Joanna Sheen
Paper and Card: Stardream Card
Embellishments: Flatback pearls and crystals, handmade hat pins
For the House Mouse digi stamp, I cropped the image to the size of my die before printing it.  This means that although the origianal image was oblong, I was able to create a square focal, with a plain edge all the way around it.
My background uses one of my favourite techniques using the lattice Boudoir Base die in lilac stardream card stock along a contrasting frame from oyster stardream card.  






Finally, I had to add a couple of handmade hatpins, don't forget to check out my two tutorials on Creating Hatpins and the aptly named follow-up, More Decorative Hatpins for a simple guide to creating your own embellishments. Pin It Now!
