Mouse Memories

Hello!  Today I have a card that I've made for the MelJen's Challenge.  It is to use a circle and a square in the same card.  I don't have any sympathy cards so I thought this would be a good card for that.  I love this little dandilion mouse by MelJen's designs and it has always been a memory maker for me when I blow the seeds off to begin anew somewhere else.  I know that most people hate dandilions, but they are still beautiful to me and a picture of strength!  Plus who can resist blowing dandilions fuzzies into the wind?   I added some sparkle to the dandilion and sponged some brown ink around the image to soften the white.  I used a scallop circle template from for behind the image.  The sentiment is one from Dee's Designs that I loved.  I think it's just perfect for a sympanthy.  I just recieved Gina K's paper piercing templates in the mail this week and I was wanting to try them out.  They work great!
