Ready, Set, Go!!

I couldn't resist colouring another House Mouse image today to use for a baby boy card. This is another stamp that amuses me. lol It's those wind up teeth that get me laughing. I made this card for the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C2 sketch for September.

I will admit that it took me a long time to put it together. Getting measurements for the background pieces right was a bit of an effort. Then I couldn't work out how to embellish the card without going to extremes. I wanted to use buttons, bling, photo corners etc but settled for what's there now.
The coloured and boy buttons are from my stash, as are the navy brads and ribbon. I added the bow to soften the card a bit.
DSP is by Kaisercraft. Hope the colouring is ok, I tried to match it to the DSP.

What do you all think - the bright colours can be suitable for a baby boy too can't they?

I'm off to bed now, I think I've caught the bug my son has just had so feeling very fluey.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my cards.
Take care everyone.

Awww feel better soon. We have so much sickness here. It seems too early for all of that. I love this sweet image. It is perfect for a little boy. I find these larger HM images so hard to create a card with. You did a great job..
