A rainy day

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week the optional twist - or theme - is "FLOWERS". I used an image of a mouse in the rain from our sponsor, Bugaboo.

I colored the image using mostly grey and pink Promarkers and I cut it out and made a frame and sentiment using dies from Dienamics. For the birch trees I used a die from Memory Box. I added a piece of cheesecloth and a ribbon trim for my flowers.

This card is also for these challenges:
Come and Get It - Feature A Creature
Crafting When We Can -  # Ribbon, twine or washi
Glitter n Sparkle - #149 Add Some Flowers
Cut it Up- #76 Animals

I do love pink and grey. I haven't see you use cheesecloth for a while and just realised I missed seeing it on your cards!

I don't know in Norway, but here we would need some rain... There is a terrific heat, everything shoal and they are also many fires. Then your card is propitiatory, thank you :D
I admire so much the elegance of this card, with the roses on the bottom and these birch trees! I think it's very feminine! The mouse with umbrella is a cutie! Love the colours combination of grey and pink and the dp is just perfect to highlight it!!
