Cupcake Mice

I've used one of my old favourite stamps on today's card...it's from the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black...and I coloured it using watercolour pencils. All of the papers are by My Mind's Eye (from the '29th Street Market' and 'Penny Lane' collections), and I embossed the plain ones using my 'Hexagon Illusions' and 'Cupcakes' folders by Craft Concepts...sanding over the top to reveal the white core. I added some faux stitching around the edges with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen, and used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border.
