Coffee cup mouse

My second card today for House Mouse 'all natural' challenge, Papertake Weekly sketch and Cute Card Thursday 'cheers'. I used this cute little HM mouse in a coffee cup which is marker coloured and sponged with distress inks. The gorgeous Scribble Scrabble backing papers were a gift from my lovely friend Tania (x) and I've used fairly neutral tones in line with the HM challenge together with some plaited string threaded through punched holes and also twirled into a circle to make a button shape. Added stickles and liquid pearls for froth to the cup and the HM sentiment to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
