House Mouse Challenge DT Finalist Entry #2

Click HERE for the Whimsy Change of Seasons Blog Hop
Runs through 10/28

This is my second entry for the House Mouse Challenge Design Team call, my simple card. It's a regular fancy folds or such. Here goes! I only have 3 pics as this card doesn't have as much for me to show you hehe.

I am really happy with how this turned out! It's very much my style! Don't get me wrong, I love "over the top" as much as the next guy, but this one is just me! I must share that the cute "buttony bow" is a wonderful tutorial by Joanne you can find here. It's really easy and I love how it dresses up a card! Keep your fingers crossed for me! And to all of you who had to help me decide what stamp to use and decide if it was "simple" enough...thanks so much! I'll keep you posted on the results!
