Sketch Saturday and Colour Create Challenges

I followed the sketch on the Sketch Saturday challenge and the colour scheme on the Colour Create challenge,which is pink and grey, it is also optional to use cute and cuddly too, well I think this mudpie house mouse is quite cute :-) It took me ages to decide on which paper to use, and cut several pieces and didn't like any of them so in the end I printed some distressed paper from a download from Funky Fairy's and made a patterned paper using a Penny Black mouse feet stamp. I also used some grey core'dinations which I cuttlebugged using the swirl folder and sanded. The cupcakes and all the text is from a Simon Says Clear Stamps cupcakes set.
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments :-)

Hi Lorraine, thanks for comments on finger - you were right, poor little thing was broken (well the knuckle bone was, or displaced) Been strapped up for a week and is great now - a bit tender but better.
Love your card, great use of the colours and I just love Mudpie with his cupcake.
hugs Heather xx

What a gorgeous card, I love the image you have used and simonsaysstamp make some lovely stamps, don't they ? I love the embossing too, you don't see much of it about now and its a shame.

Thank you for joining us in the CC challenge this week.
