Whiff of Joy 13 with my new stamp

I so enjoyed making this card. I adore this mouse with his lovely cupcake. I think I need a little more practise colouring him in, but for my first attempt it's not too bad.
This was made for the Whiff of Joy Challenge 13 which is a sketch designed by Heather. I was very good for a change Heather and stuck closely to your sketch. The only 'twiddles' (as my family calls them) that I gave into was a bit of doodling and my fabby new flowers. Yeah - okay the flowers have been around for a while but I've only just managed to get my grubby mitts on some.

Don't you just love my mouse size sentiment? How cute is that?

Items used.
Buzzcraft papers
Blue and Purple card
Henry Celebrating Mouse WOJ stamp
Prima flowers - Got Flowers, Got Flowers part deux
Creative times Just pots Funky Flowers (the large dark blue ones)
Pink dovecraft brads
Ribbon and lace from my stash
Watercolour pencils and Tim Holtz broken China distress ink
Darice Charming Embellishments Brass Charms - Words
Okay, so I haven't finished the card yet - I'm still doing the inside. But I wanted to post this to my blog before the last day of the WOJ challenge.
