Treat Yourself!

Good Evening my friends and blogging buddies and a very warm welcome to my latest followers.

I have made this card using some House Mouse Decoupage from Joanna Sheen, I had noticed a few food challenges around at the moment and thought this image would be ideal.

Once I had cut out the decoupage and put the card together, loosely following the sketch over at Flourishes, I really struggled with embellishments - it's quite a big image and nothing seemed to look right - in the end I gave up and just stuck with the one flower and the sentiment.

I left the inside quite plain as well.

Card Recipe:

Image:  Joanna Sheen - House Mouse Autumn Decoupage

I just love these HM images Pauline and your card is just adorable, it doesn't need much in the way of embellishments - the image says it all x

Gorgous card Pauline. Trouble is no-one notices the embellishments when there are such super little mice on the card xx

This is really sweet! I think you ended up with the right amount of embellishments - as you say, the image is quite big. And it's such a sweet image too, so it works great as focal point, and I think you've used such a nice DP as background for it too.
