Chill-ax with friends

When I first saw this stamp, I had to have it - House Mouse have to be my favourite stamps, then it took me ages to actually get around to stamping it....then ages before colouring it. With the help of my youngest Son's British garden bird guide I decided to colour the birds as blue tit's (one of my favourite garden birds alongside robins) ! Luckily I also had some glossy accents deep in my stash, to be honest I was a little nervous putting it on, because it took me ages to colour and was worried about ruining the image ! Trying to take a picture to show the gloss finish wasn't easy !
I have used a sketch from Sunday sketch and stamp challenge, the papers are from Basic Grey 'Euphoria'. I have used 2 ribbons, both velvet from Crafty Ribbons (I couldn't make up my mind to use the pink or the lilac !- so thought both !) The sentiment is from LOTV, flowers, pearls and gems from Prima.

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out !

I will enter this card into challenges at;
Sunday sketch and stamp - the sketch

A Creative romance - fairy tale/winged
charisma cardz - animals
The crafter's cafe - favourite craft item (House Mouse stamps and ribbon)
