I'm slightly ashamed to say that I don't think I've ever used this stamp before and I must have had it for at least 2 years. I tried to colour this one so it could be used for a man as well as a woman, and also decided to try colouring a penny black stamp with promarkers for the first time.
I have quite a lot of larger house mouse stamp that have been a bit neglected recently. Since i started doing mainly square card I've not really used then as they are too big, for some reason its never really occurred to me before to use part of the image rather than the whole thing.
For this card i took a bit of insiration from a card my mum made a couple of month ago. Her version was a wedding card rather than an anniversary one and used completely different papers and images but i loved the idea of the bower of flowers over the archway.

I was asked to make a card for a baby girls Thanksgiving (Which i was told is a sort of a non-religious christening/naming ceremony) as the parents live on a farm i thought this sweet little calf and chick images was just right.
