House Mouse Good Luck Card for HMFMC #137

For this card I have used a House Mouse stamp called "O Lucky Day" which I have coloured with my ProMarkers. The green leafy paper is from a box of loose papers, so unfortunatly I am not sure who makes it sorry, The green dotty strip is actually green vellum which I have ran through my Cuttlebug in my Dotted Swiss embossing folder. I have punched the edge with my MS Doily Lace border punch and inked the edges with a Promarker also. I used a Cheery Lynn fancy flourish die for the green flourishes and the flowers and gems are from my stash.
