Lemonade bubbles

Hello everyone!!!  I have finally played with my house mouse stamps!!!!  At least one of them ;o)  I have felt totally intimidated to actually play with them because the cards made with them are soooo awesome... and well my cards are pretty ordinary...  So I totally went all out!!!  And I have done so to be able to play in a few challenges.

I also have received my gorgeous dies from Joanna Sheen and just NEEDED to try them out ;o)  I also got a bunch of other House mouse stamps that were on sales... yup... what can I say I'm an addict ;o)

So I really went embellishment crazy... hope you like it!!!

I have used some paper from Summer fresh by Simple story.  I used my Label 2, Label 8 and my decorative label 8 from Spellbinder.  I went really all out and used some of my fabulous flowers from Wild orchids white cosmos.  I also added a rose from Recollection.  I added some stickles to the flowers.  I used some pearls!!! I embossed the polka dot paper with my Quickutz polka dots embossing folder. I had seen in a magazine someone embossing polka dots on a polka dot paper and thought that was fun.

Here's a closer look at the image that I stamped.  I used some copics and I put crushed olive distress ink.  The sentiment is a stamp from Serendipity stamps - 988 QCL lemons.  I just loooove being able to use my stamps!!!  Don't use them enough...
And here's a closer look at the awesome flowers and the fabulous new dies from Joanna Sheen.  They cut so very well and sharp.  They also embossed really well!  It's Leaves and stamens SD005 and Leafy flourish SD013.
Hope you like my card!!!  Is it up to the standards of house mouse?!?  I just loooove those little stamps.
