Waltzing Mouse ..

I haven't had time to enter the WaltzingMouse challenge for such a long time and I found this weeks sketch so unusual ... and definitely challenging to me! Then yesterday I was speaking to one of my friends' who is off to Spain for a month and she was saying how she liked to receive Euros instead of gifts on her birthday ... that way she can enjoy her stay and treat herself and her hubby to a nice evening meal ... so that was my inspiration for this card ...



The Maya Road envelope opens to put the money inside ... And yes, it's very colourful I know ... but I wanted to make sure it stood out so she wouldn't lose it ...


The background paper is from a pad my SIL gave me ... flowers are Prima ... blue papers and stamped tape are Tim Holtz and the postal stickers are from my stash ... I also added a button and a scrap of lace and did some stamping ...
I'll be back tomorrow with another card to share ... till then keep safe
