Show us your inspiration at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today is the next challenge at the

and the theme this week was chosen by little old me :)

I chose to go with a 

Photo Inspirational

so here is your photo

here is what I created for my design team inspirational piece, but don't forget to check out the rest of the design teams creations for lots more eye candy

I created an easel card, not done one for a while, so made a change.  The base colour is gold mirror card and the papers are from Grimsby Crafts.  The image is of course some of my favourite little mice, just love em!!!  I have used the MS little heart punch, some pearls from the Hobby house and lots of lovely flowers in the main from Wild Orchid.  The ribbon is from stash.  

The return and front sentiment are from a set of sentiments from Grimsby Crafts

The sentiment nestie has been bent to shape and I have added cerise stickles to the image and diamond to the flowers.  The image has been coloured in copics, think I used nearly every colour in the green and yellow green spectrum for the leaves. 
Here is a close up, awwwwwwwwwwwwww

Now if you have not noticed, although I am sure you have my new 600 follower candy has been posted and you can enter this here . I would like to welcome all my new followers  and wish all my followers luck in the 600 follower candy.   Just have to say you are all awesome thrilled to be over the 700 mark and looking forward to more candy buying:)
