House Mouse Challenge 11 (I've come over all purple!!!)

Hello all,
No I haven't got my computer back yet :( Hopefully it'll be back home with mommy tomorrow. But for now I've pinched my Dads' computer to post my new card. And what a to do I've had doing it. Unlike my computer that has hundreds of programs on it my Dads' has a hand full so trying to download my pictures from my camera has taken about 30 Min's instead of 5. Oh well, I got there in the end ...

















I made this card for House Mouse Challenge 11, and the challenge is called "That Natural Feeling"
So I decided I was going to use some pressed pansies I had bought a while back from the Joanna Sheen craft site that I had used on a New Year card.
It's an A5 card (Stardream pearlescent purple) that has had 3cm cut off the front flap. The pressed pansies and leaves are stuck onto some watermark taffeta looking paper I got off eBay, that was then edged with some silver peel offs. For my backing I used Stardream pearlescent Ruby card. I stamped with an Elusive Images "Wild Meadow" Theme plate stamp, with a Cats eye purple ink pad and heat embossed with Moon Glow Angel Wings Gold EP. Then it was edged with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink pad. The stamp is called Spring Blossoms, that of course was coloured in using my Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Sansodor and then mounted on a Nestabilities petite oval using the same card as the base card. The ribbon is from the Raspberry Ribbons August Kit - Paisley.
Right I'm off to enter this into the challenge, then I'm off to annoy my Dad for a bit, that's what kids are for right? even if I'm nearly mid 40's :)
Take care & keep smiling
Ann
