  3. Hi Beth, what an awesome card. LOVE the shape and all the beautiful extras you added around that adorable beautifully colored mouse image. The fibers look amazing tucked under the image, and of course those gorgeous flowers just add so much. Inside sentiment is perfect too.

    Went to bed with snow also, and woke to rain. So ready for Spring. Have a great week.
