House Mouse 1st Birthday Card

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Whilst getting my evening fix of Come Dancing, X Factor and I'm a Celebrity last night, I multi tasked and coloured this cute little image.  Really enjoy taking the time to colour it is so relaxing.  This morning I created this little number for a little boys 1st Birthday Card.

I followed the sketch at Midnight Madness
and aimed for my favourite House Mouse Challenge too, so here is what I came up with 
An extended easel card, the base colour is a mustard yellow card and this is also the contrast colour.  I have used my smaller grand nestie circle and circle scallop, along with an MS punch and an original scallop nestie circle, with the plain circle cut out in the centre.  The remaining circle has been used on the return, I hate to waste don't you.  I have used Marianne dies for the floral flourishes and Wild Orchid flowers airbrushed this time in YG25.  The little pearls are from a win, they are non sticky pearls in two sizes from Pizzazz Aplenty, not these did take a little time to get use to working with but after about the third one, I had the hang of it. Bow from Hobby House and return sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly and little sentiment sorry cannot remember but I put the number one inside it.

Here is the return on a close up

Here is the front on a close up

and as always here is the amazing image coloured in copics
awwwwwwwwwwwww adorable little critters, not sure about the teeth wind up though poor little mouse :)

Beautiful card Kate, the image is adorable and your colouring is just perfect as always.
I am hanging my head in shame as I haven't been over to visit you in far too long and consequently I've been here through most of I'm a Celeb, really I guess I should offer you rent I've been here so long lol.
I love your little bottle holders and thanks for the brilliant tutorial :)
I see you've been at our papers again you brave girl and the card you made with them is just stunning.
If I'd known you were moonlightling as an ironing lady I'd have hired you lol
big hugs Mandy xx
