House Mouse #24 - Tall and Thin

Oh Boy - did this take me out of my comfort zone - Tall and Thin is this week's

Materials
Bazzill bc : Basic Grey Offbeat papers : Image House Mouse - Gentle Rain : Watercolours : Martha Stewart Lace Doily punch : EKSuccess stamen punch : Ribbon, flowers, sentiment from stash
