House Mouse Fish Tales

Here is another House Mouse card I have made. When I first coloured the image I had no idea what papers or sketch I would use with it, so when it came to actually choosing something I was a bit worried. Out came some of the papers I've got in my stash and lo and behold, this paper came to light. Perfect, then I matched cardstock, ribbon and silver pearls, found a sketch from the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge for inspiration and woo hoo, finished. I just had to use my new zig zag embossing punch too. My image is bigger than depicted in the sketch but I think it works ok.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Leigh - I'm really having a giggle - how many times I've coloured a few images when the mood has taken me then not been able to find papers to suit lol.
You've managed fabulously - perfect papers for that gorgeous, beuatifully coloured image.
