PBSC April - Anything Goes (Optional 'Numbers')...More Inspiration!

It's the third Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for some more inspiration for this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'

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

I used a cute mice image for my card called 'Cheesecake Parade'...stamping it on to watercolour paper, and colouring it using watercolour pencils. I added a sentiment using a stamp from the 'Go To Words' set by Visible Image, then as this was the card I made for my Mum's recent birthday, I added numbers to the balloon that the littlest mouse is holding. For the background, I used a piece of watercolour effect paper from the 'Pastel Watercolours' pad from The Works...first of all cutting it into quarters, before embossing each section using a different Cuttlebug embossing folder. I lightly sanded over the raised areas (to reveal a little of the white core), then distressed all of the edges and adding faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. Finally, I matted the image and embossed pieces on to kraft card, then added them to the card blank.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
