Beautiful Sunny Day

The sun has finally made an appearance today after two days of cold and rain so we are off out very soon to make the most of it. Hope you are all having a great weekend x

This is a little card I made for the challenge over on the House Mouse & Friends Challenge Blog and it is for the Birthday Challenge HMFMC191:

I have gone back to a smaller card (5.5" x 5.5") just because its my first attempt at a 'Z fold' card and I love the results:

Here is a close up of the little House Mouse:

Items used to make this card:

Backing paper from 'Scruffy Little Cat' 6 x 6 paper pad (bought from Crafters Companion)
Orange and Yellow card from stash
Yellow gems
Orange / Yellow chalk (to soften the white card around the image)
Sentiment - free stamp from 'Crafters Inspiration' magazine (Crafters Companion)
House Mouse - from the Happy Days  'Its Just Gardening' set (JSHM071)
Promarkers (Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Blush, Tan, Apple)

Thank you for popping by x
