Feeling Rosy / House Mouse

The challenge this week over at The House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog is a sketch sponsored by 2 Red Bananas. I fell in love with this sketch right away and I know I will use it again...and again....and again. I thought of several images I could use for this but chose to go with the very first one that popped in my head when I first looked at the sketch. I thought of England, the Queen and tea. I thought of a House Mouse having a "spot of tea" with the Queen! Sorry for the poor scan of the card. The ribbon is actually not that dark in real life. It is actually a much softer peachy pink color than it is showing in the picture.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: House Mouse "Feeling Rosy" by Stampabilities
Cardstock: Wausau
Printed Paper: Basic Grey / Two Scoops Collection
Ink: Memento
Spellbinder's Circle Nestabilities
Brads, Ribbon and Paper Doily
Techniques: Image colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol

Take some time to check out the fabulous creations for this week's challenge over at The House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog!

This is sooo adorable. I just picked up this stamp and was wondering how to best use it. Love your soft color choices.
