House Mouse Monday Challenge

Fantastic sketch this week on House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

Here it is.

And here is my card, I really enjoyed doing this one.


I layered up the Cosmo Cricket papers and stitched around them with a zigzag stitch using contrasting threads. I then cut out 2 circles, one plain and one pp with nestabilities. I cut around the house mouse image and coloured in with promarkers. I didn't have any small flowers so I used 2 punches that I had and the cosmo cricket papers to make the flowers. I added a little gem to each of them. Lastly I added the sentiment which is from Stampin Up onto a word window punch shape and then the brads to each corner.
