Lovey Dovey Mice

Afternoon All!
Today I'm back with a little card I made using a fab digi image from the House Mouse CD. I love the fact that there are few House Mouse digi's on that CD and I only wish that there were a few on the Gruffies and Happy Hoppers CD - I can't get enough of colouring these cute little characters in!

Anyhoo, after watching the fab Nicky from Polka Doodles on Create and Craft - I decided to splurge on 12 Graph It markers to give them a whirl alongside my Spectrums and Promarkers...and I must say, she is definitely right about the vibrancy of the colours. The dark pink on these little buds really stands out. Think I may be tempted for some more of them when I've saved up!

 The papers I used were from Kaisercraft - the silver embossed from The Lake House and the dark pink from Secret Admirer. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and I added gingham ribbon, a polka dot bow, a pearl gem and a heart shaped charm for a bit of embellishment. The inside is decorated to match - another wonky inside shot I'm afraid LOL!

Hope you like it! I'm hoping to enter it in the following challenges:
ABC - E is for Embellishment (3 embellishments - Charm, ribbon and pearl gem)

Best wishes
