Ice Cream Critters

Evening All!
I just popped by today to show you my entry for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge which this week is for 'Buttons, Bows and Bling'. I used the lovely image of two mice enjoying a tub of ice cream which I coloured with Promarkers. The background papers were from Papermania and some lovely coppery American Crafts textured card was used for matting and layering. I also used a Martha Stewart punch for a border then added a bow, buttons and tiny matching gems in the corners - hope you like it!
Why not head over to the challenge site where you'll find they are celebrating their anniversary of 100 challenges with a blog hop and some really fab mousy and non mousy prizes up for grabs!
I would also like to enter this card into the I Love Promarkers Challenge which this week is for 1 ribbon, 2 designer papers and 2 gems or buttons and also for the Simon Says Stamp and Sir Stampalot - Anything Goes - challenges.
Thanks for looking!
Bye for now
