Mice icing

Another gorgeous sunny morning here. At least we did get some overnight rain on Saturday and Sunday but it's unbelievable weather for May. Got some gardening done yesterday as well as cleaning, shopping and ironing so after catching up on blogging there wasn't much time left for crafting. However I did manage to make one card and I finally got round to using this LOTV stamp I bought from the last release. This image does make me smile, there's such a lot going on. The papers are Dovecraft and Laura Ashley. I used my new cupcake embossing folder from Craft Concepts, perfect for this image.I also used my new MS topiary punch, then covered most of it up with flowers and leaves!

Challenges:
Lili of the Valley Animal antics
Moving along with the times Have some cake
Cute Card Thursday I like chocolate a lot

I love all the elements you have put together. What do you use to stick everything down with. I have started to use a silicone glue and was wondering if that is the best glue to use.
