Love is in the air

That is the challenge at Penny Black and more this month.
It has taken me a while to get to there but better late than never.
This is one of my older Penny Black stamps and
I just love the look on the face of the mouse and
the way his tail curls into a heart.
The rose he is carrying I have painted with Smooch Glitz.
The photo is not very clear I'm afraid as the paper I have used in
the background is embossed with tiny flowers.
I bought this many years ago and probably was unable to cut it up
because it is so sweet.
Found it the other day when I was going through my stash.
I sponged the edges with DI Spun Sugar.
Have put 2 rows of lace on the bottom panel back to back
with some grosgrain ribbon along the middle.
The little flower on the corner of the image is also cut from lace.
The flower I coloured with DI Spun Sugar and the leaves
have been dabbed with copic YG03 one of my favorites.
I have finished it off with some gems from Papermania.
Am entering this in:
Penny Black and more at alsorts - Love is in the air.
In the pink - Lusious lace.
Make it Monday - Anything goes linky party.
Thank you for dropping in you are most welcome.
