Basic Grey/Sketch Saturday Challenges

I made this card following the fabulous Sketch Saturday Challenge :-)

The theme this week on the Basic Grey Challenge is a colour challenge of brown/yellow/pink :-) The papers I used are from my new Lemonade paper pad ,,, gorgeous !! :-)

I used one of my new House Mouse Stamps, this one is called House Mouse Rubber Stamp BERRIED HMJR1031 Strawberry I coloured the image with copics,,,,the strawberries are very juicy and some juice has dripped a bit onto the face of one of the mice ,,,, !! :-)

The flowers are a mixture of papermania and prima,,, all of them have been coloured with copics and distress inks, the ribbon and charm is from my stash :-)

Unusually for me I even decorated the inside !!

I just had to use this little mouse too, he's soo cute !! :-) This one is House Mouse Rubber Stamp BERRY TIRED HMF1013

All the papers, stamps and embellishments ,, including the charm are available in the Simon Says Stamp Store ,,, along with millions of other products ! :-)

I have a blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to enter :-)

Thanks for looking ,, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Isn't my blog fab !!!! Basic Grey DT Martine designed this for me :-) isn't she fantastic !!! I just love it and my signature is brilliant too ;-) I will be forever grateful to you Martine x x x ( no guessing where this card is going ,,,, ;-0 )
