Throwing Daisy Petals

I have something a little bit more fussy for you today...this card uses a cute House Mouse image (called 'Throwing Daisy Petals') and papers from the My Mind's Eye 'Indie Chic - Nutmeg' pad. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, and distressed all of the edges a little before adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual, and the flowers are a mixture of Prima and Poppicrafts...held in place using a BasicGrey brad.
