House Mouse Springtime #142

Lorraine is in the mood for tip toeing through the tulips and is thinking about Spring when she chose this challenge!

I thought about how good clothes smell when they are hung out to dry during the spring and summer...sniffffffffff..... they smell so good!!!

I just got out a gazillion copics and colored this up and added some of my pretty new dotted satin ribbon from Stampin Up! Lovely ribbon indeed!  This is a big stamp so I kept it simple so the card would not get so big that it would not fit in an envelope.

I added a pretty punched border at the bottom. Let me tell you why-Confession time-I scored the darned cardstock wrong so my base was short on one side. (not paying attention).  To even it out I added the pretty border-must have been meant to be because I liked that look LOL! Covering up boo boo's can add to some pretty additions and send a card in a whole new direction. That's my story and I am stickin' to it!

I clipped the sentiment to the card with these teeny tiny little clothes pins.  Very fun!

You call that design change and being very very clever and making your card even prettier....haha Just darling. The card you did yesterday mention the square nesties from Silhouette. I could not find it. Can you give me the number or designer of the square? I think it is very pretty and would like to get it!
