Party Time

Hey there.
I have just about recovered from the weekend's festivities.
Everyone had a great time - fuelled by copious quantities of Margaritas!
Here's the card I made for my daughter, Maria.

This little mouse stamp is one that I often overlook, because it's so small,
but it was just perfect here to complement my huge bow.
I die cut the 25, and added a piece of gliter paper behind it.
I don't have any gold sequins, so I had to get creative with making my own. I used the same gold glitter paper and a standard hole punch for the large ones, and a button punch for the small ones (they were the little pieces from the centre holes, that you would usually discard).

STUNNING!! So elegant and I adore the little mouse and huge bow and those painstaking dots you added.

I somehow missed this post - but am glad I hopped into your blog to just say - in reply to your comment about gems and pearls and postage issues - Josy Rose nail heads are fabulous and cards will go through the dreaded slot. But, you're on a self imposed stash diet so maybe I shouldn't tell you that :) Sorry!
