Teacup Mouse...



Hi everyone, hope you're all well. It's my day off today, well sort of... I am going in when DH is back from work at about 6pm, so in the meantime I wanted to share a card I made for Brother in laws Grandmother. She loves coffee so I went with this cute MelJen (teacup mouse) image which is available at Whimsy. I wanted the card to have an antique feel so I added the rose papers, eyelet lace and doily. I hope she liked it! I am entering these challenges... Bunny Zoe's Crafts - vintage, Pollycraft - stitches, Shabby Tea Room - photo inspired, Digi Doodle Shop's Best - flowers, Flutterby Wednesday.
