House Mouse Challenge ~11

That Natural feeling is this week's theme. This seems to have taken me forever - mainly because my leaves took so long to dry. I used a natural leather paper as the base and corrugated brown card for matting and layering. I cut the flower with the corrugated and brown paper and used a twill (died with Tim Holtz distressed ink) as the ribbon. I tied the button with garden twine. The image is coloured with watercolours and used a computer generated sentiment. Now all that is left to do is make a box for it otherwise it will have crmbled leaves.
