It's all about ***FLOWER POWER*** at our Fabulous House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge BLOG this week!!!

Hello & Happy Monday!! Today Im sharing 2 House Mouse cards that I created for the past two challenges at House Mouse &Friends Monday Challenge Blog.

The first card is for this week's HM&F challenge #68 which was set by our Fun and FABULOUS DT Member Lori. She has asked us to create a card with *FLOWER POWER*... Im just NOT a floral girl, so this was tough.
I followed this week's Midnight Madness Sketch #MMSC50 for mine:
Here is my take; 
Stamp: Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs, "Everything Is Coming Up Roses", from 2007. #HMJR1074, featuring Mudpie & Amanda.
Paper: DCWV  Textured CS colors, Heavy Cream Textured CS
Ink: Copics, Brown StazOn, Marvy LePlume Markers, Gel Markers
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Spellbinders Dies, Metallic Ribbon, Martha Stewart Border, Prima Flowers, Stickles Glitter
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Sponging

This next card is for our previous HM & F challenge #67, which was set by our talented DT Member Lisa, and we were to use a recipe of 3 flowers, 2 Dp's and 1 Ribbon...
Stamps: House Mouse Designs, "Walking In The Rain", HMOR1069
Paper: DCWV Glitter CS, SEI DP (can be found at ODBD stores), Bazzill CS, Heavy Cream Textured CS
Ink: Copics, Brown StazOn, Marvy LePlume Markers, SU White Signo Gel Pen
Accessories: Spellbinders, Designer double sided Ribbon, Martha Stewart Border & Corner Punches
