Love is like a rose

   Here are the cute House Mice again. Who can resist them? At least they are not getting up to mischief this time!
   I have made a square easel card. Dark damask rose core'dinations cardstock was attached to the base of the card and red peel offs used to edge it. The stop for the easel was made from green core'dinations cardstock cut out using the Spellbinders rose border die, embossed and stenciled and then backed onto another piece of card. A little glitter was applied to the rose petals. Pearls were glued to the corners.
   I wrapped red ribbon round paper printed from Crafter's Companion Party Paws CD ROM and matted and layered this onto red mirri card and white card. A short piece of ribbon was tied onto the strip of ribbon and pearls were also glued to the ribbon strip.
   The image is from Joanna Sheen's love set of House Mouse Designs stamps and is coloured using Promarkers. This was fixed to the design paper. I then made a frame from red mirri card using Spellbinders curved rectangle dies and this was attached with foam pads over the image.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Digi Designs - love and/or valentines
   The Squirrel and the Fox - use embellishments
   Gruffies and Guests - love is in the air
   Fantastic Tuesday - make it cute or sweet
