A second Card for Today

Good Afternoon Ladies, well I know that Ive already posted a card today but that one was scheduled yesterday so really and truly this one is todays one, anyway as Im going to be away early tomorrow I wont have time to link these to the two challenges that I want to enter this for and they are Crafters Companions "One for the Girls" with a Sketch and Winter Wonderlands "Have a Mousey Christmas" and as Ive used this cute Companion Mouse image I felt I could just squeeze this in before Friday.
Anyway Ive stamped it onto white card before colouring it with my copic pens, after which Ive used the new Mega Curved Rectangle Die to cut it out, then used the die to create the mount out of blue card, the sentiment is another from the same set of stamps.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card with one of three papers from the Cute Companions Xmas Cd, the first paper is a all over night picture with moons on, then second mount is a holly patterned paper and the third a sentiment one, around the bottom I have wrapped some lace and attached it to the back.
In the centre of the card Ive positioned my mounted image and my sentiment to the bottom on the left hand side, and to finish of Ive used the a gorgeous new Hellabore flower from Wild Orchid which arrived this morning, and Ive rubbed a blue inkpad on the ends of the petals, with a couple of rose buds, cherry blossoms and asters to create a flower spray which I sprayed with the irredescent spray from Crafters Companion before sticking them to my card with silicone glue and some punched out fern leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

This is so sweet. I am realising I much prefer cards with animals on rather than people. My first flowers came from Wild Orchid yesterday and I am thrilled with them. They totally transform a card, don't they?
