Cute Little House Mouse

Hello me lovelies, hope you are all surviving this wild weather.
I have really enjoyed making this card, it is a colour combination l would not have thought of using but when l saw it at Cupcakes challenge l thought this little cutie was just perfect and as l still had the paper pack of pink and greys out from craftwork cards so it all fell into place.  Brenda makes the most beautiful flowers from ribbon so l thought l would give that a try too. The dragonfly is a sissix  die l have had for years and never used and forgot about, l added some pearls to the body and some wire for antenna. I cut a frame using nesties and added it above the image

Stamp House Mouse - sleeping under flowers 
Coloured with copics and prisma pencils
papers Craftwork Cards (cottontail) ,papermania lemon sorbet and Bazzill
Punches - MS flower border, small dragonfly, SU ovals

This is the sweetest HM image...I would never have thought of this color combo, but it is SO pretty. Like the way you matted up the image, and your flower was beautiful. The gray dot paper made me think lattice at first, so had to look twice. Such a lovely card. TFS
