House Mouse Mystery Card...

I have been talking a lot lately about the online swap group I am ejnoying being part of. Well, this month, one of the swap themes was a Mystery Card Kit. Basically, you send components that could be used to create a card to your partner, and they make a card out of your kit, using only what you sent. It was FUN! Being a SU Demo, I am always the one planning and cutting cards, it was a super treat to get one sent to me! I did cut down all the layers, and ran the main image through the Big Shot with the Bigz Clear Scallop Square die. I LOVE that die, it's so easy to center things with it! I pierced each scallop, and watercolored the image. Here's a close-up of the image...
I colored this adorable House Mouse image using WaterColor Wonder Crayons and my trusty Blender Pen. The mouse is Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, and Pretty In Pink. The flower is Mellow Moss, Pale Plum and Perfect Plum. The shading is Sahara Sand. I really enjoyed coloring this!

My friend who sent me this also included a scrap with this sentiment stamped on it. The front was full, so I stuck it on the inside.
So, I have no idea where the ribbon, flowers, paper, etc is from. The die and coloring supplies are SU as that's about all I use. Thanks Meg for sending me such a fun Mystery Card Kit!!!
