House-Mouse 200th Celebration and BLOG CANDY GiveAway

Hello Friends!  I hope you are having a terrific Summer.  My family and I are blessed to be on a fun Vaca traveling, enjoying the last days of Summer Break!
Don't pass up on the opportunity to join my Teamies and I at HMFMC ! We are celebrating  our 200th Challenge with a very special party and GIVING AWAY loads of yummy BLOG CANDY.  The Candy is hidden on the DT's Blogs, so you will have to visit everyone to find it.  Come join the FUN for your chance to WIN!
 Natascha has chosen a Colour theme: Yellow, Blue and White.  So create anything using these three Colours, or, go with an "Anything Goes" theme - as long you use any of the adorable "micest" products by House-Mouse Designs; stamps, images and/or decoupage.
I've gone a little heavy on the Die-Cuts, but it was loads of FUN to put this card together! My background was sponged over a mask. The fancy fence was made with the Perseus Border Die. My flower bunch is also sponged for depth and made with Sue's Foldover Flower Die that make the cutest mini flowers. The pierced and adorned squares in this fab collection mix and match perfectly for beautiful matting layers.
