Mouse in the garden!

Have a few cards to make for 90th birthdays which I love getting orders for. I always feel your card will be appreciated by someone who has been around a long time lol. I used a cd, pin pricking and decoupage and stamping to creating this card. Hope she likes it.
stamp - crafters companion
Image - rose garden from Thomas Kinkade cd (I love these cds)
Embellishments - pin pricking, pearls, decoupage
Medium - pencils
I am entering this into these challenges:
The CD Sunday challenge - use decoupage with a cd (the roses are decoupaged)
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - anything goes
Totally Paper crafts - the great outdoors
Paper Pretties - project with an animal or animal print (used a little mouse)


I received this lovely award of my friend Miria. Thanks so much for thinking of me Miria. If you haven't checked out Miria's blog then you are missing out on a lot of inspiration!! So go check her out HERE
Also received this award from my lovely friend Crafty Chris. Be sure and check out Christine's blog HERE full of inspiration and good clean fun!!

What a pretty card. I sure like the look of the pin pricking. I did it once on vellum and honestly dont know why I havent again. I got to look through your blog and I really enjoyed your work. Especially the if the shoe fits buy another one card. I too love to create cards for others based on what they want it challenges me and gives me something different to do.
