House Mouse and Artzy Girl Challenge

Another double challenge cards, the first is for the
House Mouse challenge and has to include stitching, and guess whose sewing machine decided not to play. I'm fed up doing faux stitching so I decided to do it by hand (what a silly girl I am) - it took ages, I could have made another half dozen cards.
The second challenge is Artzy Girl and the brief there is autumn, so these fitted together quite well.
Papers: Doreen Stolz - Rustic Fields from Digital Scrapbooking Art
Stamp: House Mouse coloured with watercolours.
