Mousey Love

This is a rather sad post for me today as this is my final GDT card for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, I've really enjoyed making my House Mouse cards and have been made to feel so welcome by the DT - I'm really going to miss them.

The theme for this fortnights challenge is - Anything Goes - Use a Charm.  Make sure you pop over to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog for more details and to check out the fabulous DT inspiration and great prizes.

My card is an anniversary card for my husband, i'ts a bit soppy but I think he'll like it.  The image and floral papers are from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Triple CD Collection and the dotty papers are from Bearly Mine Designs.

The 'Happy Anniversary' sentiment is a LOTV stamp on a spellbinders ribbon banner die cut and the 'With Love' sentiment is a Flonzcraft stamp on a LOTV Tag.  I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Burlap Border to cut the dark blue border strip from the same card stock that I have used for layering.  My little charm with the sun on it is from my stash.

As usual I have decorated the inside of my card using the same papers and layout as the front.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Squirrel and The Fox Challenge 46 - Use something Metal
Challenges 4 Everybody Challenge 22 - Anything Goes
Delightful Weekly Challenge - Wedding or Anniversary
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge 41 - Bingo (Flowers, Die Cut, Charm)
Totally Papercrafts Challenge 171 - Feeling Blue

Pauline, This image is one of my all time favorites and I love how you showcased it. That border punch, your wonderful sentiment with that darling charm and all of your paper selections are just fabulous. I used the same image for our anniversary and my Hubby loved the card just as I'm sure your's will also. It was fun GD with you.
