Blossom Breeze

Hello! I have been really enjoying playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges (they have such an INCREDIBLE Design Team!), and this week was no different. The challenge is "All Creatures Great and Small." So I decided to use a House Mouse stamp. Because of that, I am also entering it into this week's House Mouse & Friends Challenge. I'll be using it for the "Anything Goes" side of their challenge.

This is Blossom Breeze, and I colored it with my Zig Clean Color Markers on Canson Mixed Media Paper.

It's been pretty bluster on Long Island this past week, so I thought this was a great stamp to use.

Because there is a lot happening within the image, I kept the rest of my card simple. I used some shades of blue and a little green cardstock from My Colors, and added a stripe of Tear It! Tape from Imagine down the side and coated it with Burgundy Glitter. That's it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day.
