Cupcake Mice

I love this Penny Black stamp...it's from the 'Critter Party' set...and I think that the expression of the mouse in the middle is just adorable. I coloured it with watercolour pencils to match the pink and brown papers, which are from the 'Hopscotch' pad by BasicGrey, and added a sentiment from the same Penny Black set. I embossed a strip of the plain brown paper from the pad with my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder, and sanded over the surface to reveal the white core. I inked all of the edges, added a couple of flowers (by Prima & Poppicrafts), an American Crafts sparkly brad, some lace from Hobbycraft, and some chocolate coloured adhesive pearls (from Wild Orchid Crafts).
