Mouse with Pumpkin

I was going to enter this mouse into that newish challenge over at Perfectly Created Chaos but it closed already. I kept getting distracted by other things (oh look! shiny!). I can still share this card with you and share the story of how I couldn't get this mouse colored nicely. I tried lighter creams and it didn't work, so I did some light tans that looked stupid, and moved onto light browns. I finally stopped there because I don't know how much color this one piece of cardstock could take.

I guess I can also share this card over at the Snippet Playground #249 since I cut the leaves out of a snippet of patterned cardstock and the bit of seam binding was just laying around being a bum.

The Fine Print: Mouse by Great Impressions, leaf cutouts from DCWV, designer paper and seam binding from my stash.

I like your mouse to peeces. I had problem colouring a mouse a short while ago and ending up doing 4 cards of all different shades. from light tan to dark donkey to grey.
I guess as miss di says they come in all colours. Hugs Mrs A.

Aww, this is such a fun card and the mouse has a suntan and looks healthier than most of his herd! Love the little corner leaf accents and I'm glad your ribbon's no longer a bum!

Oh Princess J you are too hard on yourself - the mouse is gorgeous!! As for that ribbon, good to see you put it to good use!
The fish on my card was fussy cut - not die cut :-)

I think you got this mouse colored very well! That gorgeous pumpkin draws the eye to it anyway! I think the mouse was upstaged!
