Now here is my take on the theme...
 I have used the Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Zig Zag Border behind the main Australian Melbourne Die-Cut panel. I've also used the leftover zig-zag cut pieces to decorate my square's edges to keep the fun zig-zag style throughout the design. The embossing folder is even zig-zagged! :) The Mouse was stamped, colored and fussy cut then adhered with dimensional tape. The sentiment panel is cut with the Pierced Flags from Frames and Tags Collection, then layered, glittered and topped with pearls. Ribbon peaks out from underneath it, The Bow was made and a brad attached.

Stamps: House-Mouse Designs(R) by Stampabilities " Easter Surprise" #HMER1015 from yr 2004, featuring Monica. Sentiment by Stampa Rosa #B11-2419  "Have a Micey Nice Easter" from yr 1999.

I also want to share a card I made for last week's House-Mouse and Friends MC Challenge HMFMC213, themed "Rain or Shine".  This rainy make is so fun as it uses three separate large stamps.

Only the Striplets Lattice Window craft-die was used on this entire card to create the framing. Also took the corners from the die to add above the sentiment and keep the design throughout. The stamp sentiment was also cut in half to make fit in one line going across.


3 Stamps: House-Mouse Designs(R) by Stampabilities "Special Delivery 02" from year 2003, HMOR1006, "Sitting in the Rain" from year 2001 HMPR1002, and "Rainy Daisy Day" from 2002, HMTR1017.
