Sleeping on thistles ,,,,,,aaahhh

This will be the last time I make a card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge as an entrant ! :-) YAY !! :-) I am so looking forward to joining in as a DT ! :-)

I coloured this gorgeous House Mouse Napping on a Thistle image with copics and added a little star dust stickles on the petals for sparkle and the edges were distressed with Dusty Concorde distress ink. The papers are brown/purple coredinations, which have been sanded to add a more distressed look and crafty individuals paper which has also been coloured with dusty Concorde ink around the edges. the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set

The theme on the Copics Creations Challenge is colouring on other surfaces ,, so I used my copic air brush to spray the flowers in 3 shades of purple and the button was clear so I sprayed that too, I then sprayed the whole thing with pearl glimmer mist and added stickles :-)

thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Joey and Sue ( who will from now on be known and referred to as Scoopy :-)) bought me several Lili of the Valley stamps while we were at the Ally Pally and this is one of them ,, isn't this just gorgeous and THE perfect image for this challenge I thought :-)
I coloured her with copics and added a few spots of star dust and silver stickles here and there, sparkly ! :-) The papers are Basic Grey the gems are Papermania mosaic and the rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ribbons and charm are from my stash and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set :-)
