PBSC September - Anything Goes (Optional 'Embossing')

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
'Embossing (Wet or Dry)'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

I've used a cute little mouse stamp called 'Sweet Thoughts' that I found in a charity shop on my card. I stamped him on to a snippet of watercolour paper, coloured him using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut him out. I made a simple embossed backgound using my'Cany Hearts' embossing folder by Sizzix/Craft Asylum...then distressed the edges a little and matted it on to a layer of pink card, also with distressed edges, then popped the little mouse on top using 3D foam pads. The sentiment was made using a couple of the stamps from the 'Fuzzy Robin' set by Woodware.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
