Blowing Dandelions

I'm sneaking in another post before bedtime today, to catch a couple of challenges that end in the middle of the night. I've used a House Mouse image called 'Blowing Dandelions', and papers from the 'Wisteria' pad. I distressed the edges of the paper, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I made the flower by cutting a few freehand circles from scraps of the papers, crinkling them up, and layering them up with a button threaded with twine (Dovecraft 'Tea Party') in the centre. The little sentiment is a stamp from the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black.
