Whoopee - The Mousies are back of their Hols

I have so missed my weekly Mousie fix. I actually missed the last challenge as I was about to move and had no internet connection so it seems like for ever since the last challenge at House Mouse.
 
This weeks challenge is from Janneke and her challenge this week is 
a Giftcard

Check out what thefabulous DT have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!


I wanted (needed) a giftcard for a friend in England who is due to have a baby soon. I've already done a card for a baby girl and bought some gorgeous pink baby things and left them with my daughter.  I thought I'd better prepare for a boy, in which case I will send money which should fit nicely into this envelope along with the card. 
I haven't decorated the front of the envelope yet as when I find out the details I will personalize it.
I used  Baby Monica (I know a girl - but my only suitable mouse that is the right size) but I have given her a blue bow in her hair (lol).  Monica is coloured with Copics and I cut and embossed her mat with octagonal nesties.  I used ancient paper from stash,  punched the edges with the EK Success Fleur-de-lys punch and cut the envelope flap with MS flourish sedge punch. The flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid and Papirloftet.

This is ever so precious and Monica looks great for a a little blue ribboned boy! When my first daughter was nearly bald, I used to tape bows on her head so they would know she was a girl.
