HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #214 ~ "EASTER"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! We have a new challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and we'd love you to join us. You can make an "Easter" themed card or you can choose "Anything Goes" as your theme to use with your House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, or Gruffies stamps by House-Mouse Designs®. Here's my card using "Easter Egg Nap" by Stampendous:
 

I had a lot of fun making this card; especially since my Teamie, Sue Drees told me about a sale at Want2Scrap a few weeks ago where they had sheets of 250 Pearls for 99 cents. Needless to say, there was no guilt at all when I decided to go a little crazy with them on this card. Thanks, Sue!


Here's a view from the side.
