Spyder's House Mouse Challenge

Finally! Here is my card - didn't think I was going to get it done what with Dad being in hospital for 21/2 weeks following an op. Then needing a little TLC at home & working extra hours at work to cover hols - deep breath!! Managed to get to some crafting this morning (big smile!). So here it is....

 Paper pieced toadstool/mushroom & mouse. Coloured in using ProMarkers, watercolour pencils(for background), chalked edges, glitter & Fabric Appliqué on toadstool/mushroom. Crystal lacquers on flowers & raindrop. Backing paper by Backyard Flutter from American Crafts(won these papers a few weeks ago for a card I made for a Which Crafts challenge). The sentiment made using Word on PC. Love the image-thanks Lyn xx
