House Mouse

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who commented on my Ribbon Box. Thanks so much. It definitely was a learning curve.

I made this card for Kylie's birthday using the sketch from the House Mouse Monday Challenge 18. I've lost count of how many times I coloured this image. I had one that was reasonably coloured then mucked it up by trying to alter something. Lesson learnt, leave things alone. lol
The c/s is Bazzil, with the embossing done using the cuttlebug folder Happy Birthday. Image is coloured using Prisma pencils, paper stump and solvent. Colourbox chalk ink around the edges of the image and the sentiment is Stampin' Up. As I haven't much imagination, I used the same sorts of colours on my image as is on the actual stamp which I can't find at the moment. Goodness knows where I've put it. Just looked it up and it's called Exciting Celebration. Actually I really enjoyed doing this card and am hoping to get a lot more done. Since doing this one, I splurged and bought myself some more Prisma pencils.
Thanks for looking.
