Add a charm

That is the challenge this week over at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog.  I am doing another guest spot on the blog today. I went digging through my small collection of charms I have been saving to put on a card and realized that I have a lot of garden themed charms but then I found this bird charm and thought that would be perfect for this card. 

Look at those birds thinking what in the world is that mouse doing in our feeder, looks like he has been busy eating and is now stuff :)

When I won my prize from the House Mouse blog, I was gifted the pretty dimensional flower die that you see here along with that sweet pearl center from the Pizzazz Aplenty.  She has some great deals over there. Thanks again to them for the great prize package they sent.

My card measures 5 1/4 inch square. I colored it with markers.

If you don't have any charms, no problem you can still play along just stop by their blog to find out the rules.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

This is such a pretty card. That mouse is cute on your card, but I’m not sure what I would think if he were in my real feeder. The charm is cute!

You know I love your House Mouse cards. You're so good with them! This one is a pretty garden scene, but cute, too. Love that! Not unrealistic, either, unfortunately. You chose the perfect paper to back it up, and the ribbon, flower, and charm are a darling finish.
