Enjoy the Journey

Hope you're having a fab week so far. Mine is really good, I've been able to take walks without crutches! YAY!!! It's such a relief! Now I only need the physiotherapy for muscle and balance training.

This card was fun to make, love to use a lot of stamps and inks :) I think that TH and House Mouse stamps works so well together as they both have many details.
I was very brave today and cut the sentiment stamp in two pieces. Had to pause for a moment, hehe. Now I can use the stamp in many ways and it will be more useful.

Stamps: House Mouse, TH harlequin, Eiffel Tower, French letter and sentiment
Colours: Distress Inks, Versa Color, Versa Fine
Ribbon is Panduro. Gems and decor paper are from my stash. I used some Dimensional Magic to the ink bottle. (And yes, the mouse is using a clear ink that turns to black when he uses it...pure magic!)

House Mouse Challenge: Farewell / Good bye
Colour Create: soft aqua and green (didn't go for the optional butterfly)
Simon Says Stamp: blue (or pink), green and brown
