Food for Thought : My 1st House Mouse!

Good Morning Everyone, 
How excited am I??...this is my first challenge as part of the Joanna Sheen DT!!  I'm not quite sure how I managed to get on there with all those very talented ladies but I am absolutely chuffed to bits!! (Also very nervous!)
The challenge starting today is....
                                            NEW BEGININGS
and the prize is a £15 Joanna Sheen gift voucher.

This is also my very first House Mouse card. It's from a set called 'Food for Thought', which you can find here.
I've coloured them with my Promarkers. The background papers are from Prima and are called Meadow Lark.

I've used a Joy!crafts swirl die, a Whimsey corner die and a Memory Box cherry blossom die. I finished off with a few pearls.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Stamping Sensations - Friendship
Dream Valley - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge - Dies & punches
Loves Rubber Stamps - Use dies or punches

Thanks for visiting me today and for all your lovely comments. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
