House Mouse Challenge

I just love these House Mouse challenges - they are such a delight to work with. This week's challenge is a sketch. I used Basic Grey's Fruitcake papers. The stamp, Holiday Smooch, I decided to cut out - (do you ever start something and wish you'd never bothered) - although I do like the finished result!! The image is coloured with watercolours and the pearls decorating the wreath were coloured with peel-off pens. I finished it off with brads and ribbons from stash.
Stamp: House Mouse - Holiday Smooch
Papers: Basic Grey - Fruitcake

WOW! I have this image and know how fiddly cutting round that holly wreath must have been! Good job!

I've always coloured that bird as a robin.... your little sparrow looks lovely!
