House-Mouse Homewarming Card

My first House-Mouse card! Yea! I love their images and found this one at HL. I have always been afraid of coloring the mice really BAD, but I think they turned out cute. I don't have a lot of home warming images but thought this was kinda cute and would work. I used the SCS 214 sketch from SplitCoastStampers. It was a fun sketch to use and worked well with this image.
Our power didn't go out so I finished my card. Tomorrow we are suppose to be storm free so I hope to go blog hoping too see what my awesome blogging friends have been up to. Have a good night!!
Stamps:House-Mouse Hot Cocoa
Ink: ColorBox Chalk Dark Brown, Jim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo
Accessories: pink rhinestones, prismacolors, OMS, clear Stickles
Paper: White card stock (distressed), Kology Addison paper pack
