Say Cheese

I have been wanting to enter the House Mouse challenge but wasn't sure which stamp to use as I still have only a few. Time seems to have been against me this fortnight as well what with work and family commitments but at last I found a bit of me time. Looking through my stamps I decided that I could make this one fit their "I Love You Sew Much"  challenge.
 This is actually from a Christmas set called "Feathered Hugs". I used my copics to colour the image. Just love how busy they all look.


This cute little mouse is from a Birthday
set called "Icecream" and I was so pleased when I spotted him as he goes so well with the other scene.

I tore some backing paper and inked the edges and then did the same with a paper with buttons on for half of the card. I did some faux stitching around the image. The sentiment is stamped on a ticket cut using a spellbinders die and I added 4 small button brads to the corners. I used some pearls on a string and some lovely green lace and then some lovely flowers from my stash. To finish I embossed an arrow with a dark yellow cosmic shimmer embossing powder.  
I am entering my card in the following challenges -
