Someone to share the joy

I have box full of all kind of packages waiting to be reused someday :o) I blame my astrological sign of my 'garbage' collecting habit. I'm a rat :o) The base of this post-it notes holder is a package of Milka heart shape chocolate (mmm... these are so delicious)

I cut off the extra flaps (not sure is it correct word) and covered both sides with red papers. Edges are brushed over with white paint. 
Image is from very talented lady from Netherlands. Check her blog Sliekje digi Stamps. She has bunch of gorgeous digis. I think the little mouse is actually meant as winter image, but I colored the flower yellow and made some pearl rain instead of snowflakes (or it could be snow as well. It snowed last week in Estonia. It's Estonian spring).  Image is colored with water base markers (scribbled on to acrylic block) and water brush.

White paper is embossed with Craft Concepts embossing folder - In Bloom. I did also used some dies from  Spellbinders Nestabilities - Lacey Circle and Marianne Design CreaTables (leaves). Flowers are punched with dbCraft punches and butterflies with Heyda punch. Red distressed edges are made with Memento Dye Ink - Lady Bug. To add some sparkle on to flowers and yellow Lacey circle I used some atYouSpica glitter pen - Lemon. Actually yellow motives (except leaves) are colored with yellow marker and glitter pen 'couse I used all my yellow papers on previous card :o)  Dash line is made with Pergamano white gel pen. also added some Queen & Co self-adhesive pearls (in front side) and Stanger Pearl Paste - Pearl white. Sentiment is computer generated.
