   The theme this week for the Creative Corner Challenge is April showers bring May flowers and we want you to use either water or flowers on your creation. With the warm weather that we are now experiencing bringing all different flowering seasons together I thought waterlilies seemed the appropriate choice and I’m sure my young grand daughter would appreciate the mice!
    I found some previously printed paper of waterlilies and thought it would make a suitable border for this image. I fixed it to cerise core’dinations cardstock and attached wine coloured ribbon to either side of it. The whole was then matted and layered with darker core’dinations cardstock and white card.

    The image from Joanna Sheen’s House Mouse Designs rubber stamps was coloured using Promarkers and matted onto wine mirri card. I fixed it to the card with foam pads. I then added a bow, gems and a sentiment to the lower ribbon.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Crafting When We Can - for a child
   Incy Wincy Designs - tic tac toe (gems, free, pink)
   Papertake Weekly - anything goes
   Fantastic Tuesday - use a patterned paper
   Open Minded Crafting - animal antics
