Chocolate Mice

Today's card was inspired by the 'Chocolate' theme of the current Less is More challenge...and features a trio of little mice from the 'It's Your Day' set by Penny Black. I started by measuring out three squares down the centre of a kraft DL card blank, doodling them with a black gel pen, and leaving space for the sentiment (from the same stamp set). I then masked around the edges of the squares using Post-it notes, before stamping the mice inside their frames. I coloured the mice using watercolour pencils, paper piecing the balloon with a snippet of of brown spotty paper from the 'Charming' pad by Recollections/Michaels.
