Pink, Green and Lilac House Mouse Balancing Candle Quarters

Here is my first House Mouse card! I've always loved these images but haven't been able to justify the cost. Thankfully, the lovely Joanna Sheen has now released some of these images as unmounted stamps, making them a lot more affordable. Hopefully a few more of these lovely images will be made available in this format.

The House Mouse image, from the Birthdays Balloon stamp set from Joanna Sheen, was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using Copic sketch markers:
  • Mouse Fur: E31, E43
  • Mouse Face/Ear/Tail: R20, E40
  • Eye: C0
  • Candle: YG07, YG11
  • Flame: YR02, Y08
The image was die cut using an oval Nestabilities die and matted onto a green oval and lilac big scalloped oval die cut from pearlescent paper.

Squares of papers from the K&Co Sparkly Sweet paper pad were matted onto Anita's lilac pearlescent paper and a length of Anita's pink self-adhesive satin ribbon adhered over the join.

The sentiment, from the HOTP Sentiments stamp set, was stamped using ColorBox Fresh Green pigment ink and die cut using a circle Nestabilities die, then matted onto a larger green circle and scalloped lilac circle.

The image panel was matted to the left of the panels and the sentiment in the bottom right corner.

Here are the challenges that I am entering this card into:
