Think Spring

This card is for the Create 4 Fun Challenge CR84FN48 which was to use Chartreuse, Gray and Lavender for the main colors on your project. Here is the inspiration photo.

And here is my card.

 I actually colored this image up some time ago. I came across it when I was searching out papers for the challenge and it's perfect for this color challenge. The main image is Stampabilities House Mouse-Chamomile Tea. I absolutely love the House Mouse stamps. Those little critters are so cute.  I stamped the image on Bazzil Simply Smooth white cardstock with Staz-on Black ink and colored it with Prisma Colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I added some Stardust Stickles to the sugar cubes. The Sentiment, from Hot Off the Press 'Stamp & Punch' stamp set, is stamped with Versamagic Ink-Spring Pansy. The green and lavender cardstock are Recollections cardstock. I cut the image & card base out using Spellbinders Curved Rectangles. For the lavender mat I traced around the die I used to cut the image out and cut it by hand and put the 2 layers together with some green and lavender brads.  I popped the image panel up with SU foam dots. I really like how it turned out.
Thanks for taking a peek! Leave a comment please!
