I followed the fab sketch on the House Mouse and Friends challenge :-) (there are 2 HM challenges :-))Brill !! :-)

The image was a stamped House Mouse image that my buddy Cathy sent me :-) I do NEED this stamp tho ,, very cute :-) This one is called 'Surprise Party' I coloured the image with copics and coloured the edges with distress ink. The papers are from Papermania and are called Henbury Lane. I used a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and some buttons from my drawer :-) The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set I bought this fab ribbon at the Ally Pally :-)
