I heard it through the Grapevine...............

Good afternoon everyone I hope you are all having a great weekend I feel a little down in the dumps today but I am sure it will soon pass I hope.
Today I thought I would share this card I made for the House Mouse Challenge I hope I make it in time.
I have water coloured the image with Le Plume markers onto watercoloured card and the paper is from an old Daisy and Dandilion pad from Papermania.The greeting is from a Hero Arts set,Flowers are made from a Heartfelt creations spellbinder die set and the pearls for the centres are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have kept it quite simple so the eye is drawn mainly to the image.
I hope you like it.

I am entering this one into the following challenges:
House Mouse-Birthday
Cute card thursday-Anything goes
Fab n funky-BINGO-flowers,sentiment,Die cuts
Simon says stamp-sing it-'I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE'by Gladys and the Pips
Lothian crafts-homemade flowers

Thanks for visiting me oh and as I have been typing I am feeling much better now so much so I am going to make a choccie fudge cake later.
Take care
Lorraine xx

Oh Lorraine I am sorry to hear that you are feeling down in the dumps, I hope that as the day goes on you improve, the weather doesn't help does it, we have had rain and thunder hear today and it has been so dark. Tell you what your card would cheer anyone up, your colouring of the gorgeous image is absolutely fantastic, the papers and those little flowers are a lovely finishing touch. Excellent card.
