A Cheesy Mouse!

I love this image, first time I've used it! And as I hadn't entered anything in The House Mouse and Friends Challenge for months I was hoping this will fit! Also I'd had an email reminding me about another challenge I hadn't joined in with for ages over at Card Making World (This month it's a sketch) AND! I wanted to remind you about Quirky Crafts Masculine with blue and brown challenge, which started last Sunday. So I'm hoping this little card will do all that, plus a bit more! (Forever Friends has a spring animal challenge, I think!)
I did want to add more things. Flowers, glitter...I'd already added a die cut corner and made the panel with a lacy edge, but seeing I was supposed to be following a sketch, I was very good and stopped! (I did have some flowers ready to go in the other corner though!) Of course I did make one big mistake... I stuck the whole lot on the card the wrong way round... so ended up having to peel off the image and turn the 'sketch' upside down... aw well, no one'll notice!!
I first heat embossed the stamped image. (Jet Black StazOn Ink with clear embossing Power) Forever Friends 'Just For Him' Papers 6x6 paper pack. House Mouse Image: Birthdays Balloon (the other image in the set has the balloons!) Nestabilities Scallop Circle die cut. Woodware and Crafts Too scalloped oval punches and a Martha Stewart Border Punch. The ribbon is from DoCrafts. I've also used TimLink Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Promarkers.
I printed the sentiment in brown. The font is a freebie. It's called Ackident and you can download that HERE I've added the sketch, the right way up!
New Follower! Sandy (a WOYWW fan) and her lovely blog Lonely Cards Pop over and see some of her fabby cards! That's all folks! Better go and draw tomorrows Freebie!! Bye for now.
