Joanna Sheen GDT Card

I'm delighted to have been picked as guest designer for the Joanna Sheen challenge blog!  The current challenge is "Try Something New", for my card I used a technique for faux pressed flowers which I have used before but never as a frame.  I've added a tutorial if you fancy a go too, check out the post below.
The super sweet image is a House Mouse stamp, part of a massive House Mouse prize I won in a magazine competition earlier this year, and has been coloured with Promarkers.
The scrummy papers are Meadow Lark by Prima, I just love them, the designs and colours are so pretty.
The 8x8 parenthesis card was inked with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and all the layered papers were distressed with my Tim Holtz tool to add to the shabby look.
I completed my card with a doily, lace, pink raffia, pearls and gems.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Penny Black and More - whiskers and/or wings
Great Impressions - animals
Di's Digi Designs - no squares
The Ribbon Girl - bingo - pearls, bow, lace
Our Creative Corner - bling and nature
Pattie's Creations - #49 - animals
Sisterhood of Crafters - diamond, pearls, lace
