House Mouse Monday Challenge - Spring Butterfly Kites

Coffee of the Day - Irish Cream

Here is my submission for this week's House Mouse Monday Challenge. The theme for the week is 'Spring'. I am using more of the K & Co. Que Sera Sera papers with this adorable stamp. The butterflies are painted in Beeswax shimmerz to make them sparkle. The blue/turquoise paper is actually the flip side of the floral paper. The glitter flowers are some by Heidi Grace that I found in my stash. I'll have another project to show later in the week showing the other flower that comes in the package. I covered the mousies in Crystal Effects to help them stand out on the cs. They seemed to be lost in the grass without it! Trim is vintage and an Etsy find. oh yes, the card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square.

As you can see I didn't take a stamping break at all. God worked on me and my pride at not being accepted to the DT, 'cause that is all it really was - plain ol' pride rearing its ugly head. (plus being sick, but that's a whole other story) I ended up stamping Sunday night and enjoying myself immensely. So essentially, if God tells me to stamp and create, then that is what I will do. He has a much greater purpose and plan for me than I can possibly understand. And he has it all worked out to a 'T' if I just allow myself to follow Him.

So everyone have a great day! It's rainy and cool and totally glorious here! :D

This is adorable! I love the image you used. I almost bought that stamp the other day, but unfortunately I can't buy them all at once :). It will definitely stay on my wish list now. Your papers and embellishments are perfect. Don't you just love double sided paper? So easy to coordinate. Great take on the challenge!

Sara said...

Beautiful Jennifer, you did a great job on the challenge, I'm still thinking about it.

Barb said...

Very beautiful card! Your coloring is terrific!

Carmen said...

LOve the card. I can so relate to how hard it is sometimes to follow God's plan.....I many times follow but it is not with much enthusiasm....so I have to remind myself to follow obediently and as cheerfully as I can. Hey, I am just a woman. hahaha Thank goodness God loves me to put up with some my juvenile behavior. hugs!

How very beautiful!!! I can almost feel the spring wind blowing through my hair as I watch these adorable mousies flying their lovely butterfly kites. You have truly captured the essence of this precious image with your delicate papers, wonderful coloring, and perfect design elements. A gorgeous creation, as always!!!
