House Mouse Eek Eek Eek

While surfing this week, I found a new challenge on Heather's blog with a link to go to a new blog called Truly Scrumptious. The challenge is a sketch and is being sponsored by Alota Rubber stamps. This card is the result. I turned the sketch onto it's side, so I hope that is permissable.

The papers I used are called Waterberry by Kaisercraft are just gorgeous. I love the colours. I also having been very keen to use this House Mouse stamp called Eek, Eek, Eek. Monica is just cute being on the telephone.
I chose the wording as the closest thing I had to something that a mouse would say on the telephone. rofl I was a bit unsure about the flowers I chose at first, but I just love them. The vintage look of them and the colours do go with the papers and cardstock.

Stamps - House Mouse Eek, Eek, Eek by Stampa Rosa and Very Mice Day by Stampabilities
Papers - Bazzill cardstock Aqua, Fire Hearts, Kachina, Chantilly (unavailable now), Kaisercraft Waterberry range of dsp
Inks - Archival black ink, Colourbox fluid chalk ink Aquamarine
Accessories - Nestabilities, Kaisercraft Waterberry brads, Prima Aloha Petals, Hero Arts Art Flowers Pastel Collage, Ribbon from stash, Prismacolour pencils

Thanks for all the comments on my blog. It's wonderful to read them all.
Hope you enjoy this card.
