House Mouse Sweet Kiss

Hello from a wet and maybe soon to be windy Koumala. There is a category 4 cyclone out there in the Coral Sea called Hamish. It's currently travelling at 17kms an hour, south-southeast, parallel to the coast. Here's a link to the map. We've already lost power here today for an hour or so, perhaps an indication of what's to come?

Anyway, I managed to make a card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge. We had to use chipboard on our project. The papers I used are from the Kaisercraft A La Carte range. I used Eucalypt Opals on my Kaisercraft chipboard flourish and added the lace. The sketch is Mojo Monday's Week 75. The card probably doesn't conform completely to the sketch but I like it.
Yes, I know the photo is crooked, but after taking several and they were all the same for some reason, I gave up.

Thanks for visiting.
