April Showers

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and this fortnight our theme is: Flowers & Flourishes chosen by Kelly.

For my card I've used a fabulous image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Triple CD Collection and papers from the Echo Park Sweet Day collection.



I layered my image and papers onto brown card stock and also cut my flourish from the same card stock with a spellbinders die, the flowers have been made with Punch Bunch punches and pearls added to the centre, the sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp.

We have three fabulous sponsors this week:

who are offering a surprise package of embellishments worth $15.00. 
(Due to increased postage costs, the winner for this prize must reside in the USA)

and we also want to welcome back our amazing SPONSOR...



One Lucky winner will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to go shopping at the official House-Mouse Designs store.

Winners, please note that where ever it is applicable, the shipping fees, the handling fees and the tax fees are the winner's responsibility.

AND

Another lucky player will get this sweet House-Mouse Designs stamp - generously brought to you by our talented Teamie and challenge Hostess, Kelly Smith.


THAT's FOUR Fabulous Prizes, and that means FOUR Chances for you to win. 

Three Lucky winners will also be offered a GUEST DESIGNER SPOT with our Mousey Team for the next two months, (May and June 2014).
