Anybody Home??

Here is my card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge#52 - A Year in Review. It's so long since I participated in the House Mouse challenges. Actually I've missed them. This image cracks me up!!! (pmsl, pun intended). For this challenge, we choose our favourite challenge over the past year and make a new project. I chose to use Challenge#43 which was a sketch.
I didn't put a greeting on my card mainly because I thought it would make a cute baby boy card but could be used for other occassions.
Paper is Kaisercraft and cardstock is Bazzill. I used my nesties for the circle and scallop circle. The ribbon I found when I was rummaging (yep, rummaging being the operative word) in my ribbon box, quite a good match I thought.
I didn't think matching brads would show up on the stripe paper so I added gold pearls by Joycraft, again something else I've had in my stash and is now seeing the light of day.
Image coloured with prisma coloured pencils and solvent.

What do you think? Cute or what? lol
Thanks for the lovely comments on my cards. I love reading them. So appreciated.

Adorable Leigh, and it's so good to have you back - wondered where you'd disappeared to.
Gorgeous colours and papers and you've coloured that image so beautifully.
