Sweet...my first House Mouse card

I have wanted some House Mouse stamps for the longest time and for my birthday last month I was able to finally get some. They are just so sweet and make me happy to look at. So, along with my new stamps I participated in the House Mouse challenge blog. The challenge this week was to use something with the "sweet" connotation, either image or sentiment. I chose this one since flowers smell sweet (most anyway:) and used a tiny stamp from PTI for my sweet sentiment. I had so much fun coloring my little mouse in with Prismacolor pencils and blending with baby oil. I added some stitching, a new MS border punch, some dry embossing with Swiss Dots and a few brads. The paper is K&Co. I'm trying to get better about using my pretty paper up, I just reorganized my scrap space, and oh my...do I have a lot of paper! I hope you like my little creation today...and your comments always make my day a little sweeter.
