Throwing Daisy Petals / House Mouse

I combined 3 challenges into one card! I didn't think I could but without really trying it all started to develop and next thing I knew....I had completed 3 challenges. That's a good thing this week because I have had a very busy schedule giving me less time to craft.

Challenge #1 is the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This is challenge #77 and the sketch to follow is below.

Challenge #2 is for the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog which had the theme of "Spring" for the challenge. You could use any image, paper, colors etc as long as your creation somehow said "Spring". I chose to use a House Mouse Image called "Throwing Daisy Petals" and I used some soft pastel colors that I felt made me think of Spring.

Challenge #3 comes from a brand new challenge blog called Use It!. This is their very first challenge and I am glad I am able to join in on their "maiden voyage". The idea behind this challenge blog is to use your current stash of supplies and not run out and buy something new to make your project with for the challenge. For this first challenge we were to use a favorite paper, use something we have never used before, use some ribbon and use a button. My paper is from We R Memory Keepers, you can see my ribbon and buttons and my never used is the floss I used to tie the buttons down. I had bought a card with 6 different colors of pastel embroidery floss on clearance a couple of years ago and never used it. I pulled it out today just for this project. My buttons are also probably from about 4 years ago and about time I used them!

Supplies Used:
Image: House Mouse by Stampabilities "Throwing Daisy Petals"
Cardstock: Bazzill
Printed Paper: We R Memory Keepers
Ink: Memento
Buttons by Lasting Impressions
Spellbinder's circle nestabilities
Floss by Making Memories
Techniques: Image colored with Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with Gamsol

I hope you will take some time to check out the other fabulous creations at Mojo Monday, Cupcake Craft Challenge and be sure to check out the brand new challenge blog Use It! Why not join in on the fun!
