Little Daisy Mouse...

Good Morning peeps

Its early but I dont care, I wanted to show you Little Daisy Mouse By Meljens Designs
a real cutie (for me anyway) and quite easy to colour. The only problem was what colours 
to use as a background!! lol. So I went for coordinating pale green gingham with a metallic 
brown on a white 6 inch square scalloped card. I scored the card to form the twisted easel 
and promptly matt & layered the metallic brown to top with the image, adding the layered
flower fastening with a brad. (There is another brad in the middle of the daisy).
I then added the bling in the 3 remaining corners, which are taken from a length of a
cream resin/plastic & faux gems stringed "ribbon type" embellishment. The backing paper
covering the base of the easel card was from a fairly old craft magazine and to that I
topped it with a lovely soft jute type ribbon topped with 
approx 18mm wide but please note this lace is made using traditional looms 
and are not computerised, therefore width of lace may vary), I entwined the
cotton lace with a plaited twine that I found in my vast ribbon stock lol. The
sentiment "Hope your day is as sweet as you are" is from my clear stamp stash.
