Cuter Than Cute!

As you know, I spent a bit of cash at the exhibition on Saturday, and today I've made a card using one of the stamps I've bought.  It's by Lili of The Valley and I liked it as soon as it came out a few months ago.  This is how I've used it:
I've used the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp which I really enjoyed.  I actually coloured the stamp last night.  Usually I look at papers, Promarkers and the stamp all at the same time, to make sure there is some co-ordination going on, but it is such an unusual stamp that I decided just to colour it how I saw it in real life (but there's always the question, grey mouse or brown mouse?!) and then this morning I looked through my papers based on the colours I used.  This is just one sheet from my free Craftwork Cards vintage papers set, and the circular piece cut out from a sheet of October Afternoon Thriftshop paper.  Everything else is just a basic red card, but I love the colour scheme of blue and red together.
I've also decided to enter this into the Papertake Weekly challenge, where they want us to use something cute on our cards.  Here's a close-up of the little mice on the stamp:
I think you'll agree, they don't come much cuter than this!  I am in love with the little mouse that's waving at you.  You might be able to see from the close-up that I've used glossy accents on the cherries and liquid pearls as cake icing, which worked really well.
Thanks for dropping by today.  I think this card has affected me, as now I want to go and bake some cupcakes...
Have a great day everyone
