Sketch with Mouse

I used to be afraid of sketch challenges, but now I just love them! Here's a card made for the Sweet Sketch challenge based on this sketch:
I've used a 3 different design papers, in addition to cardboard.
The mouse is made with a stamp from "Country Companions" and I've colored it with watercolor pencils.
I've used ribbon, pearls and a flower with a pearl brad.
I felt that the card lacked "something", so I added a banner with a stamped birthday sentiment.

I enter this card into the following challenges;
1) Sweet Sketch - #167 Sketch
2) Crafty Catz - Animals
3) Little Red Wagon - #146 Animal
4) Paper Pretties - Square Cards (2nd entry)
5) Simon Says Stamp - Animal Antics
6) Paper and Such Design - Just Stamp On It
7) The Paper Girls - Birthdays (2nd entry)
8) Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge Blog - Anything Goes 4 Kids
9) Gems of Inspiration - Teddies or Animals
10) Craft Your Days Away Challenges - Anything Goes

Hi Pia, your card is absolutely beautiful, I love this little mouse which you have coloured beautifully. I knew that you had coloured it with water colours because of your paper. Your design papers are the most perfect match for your card and so are your wonderful embellishments. This mouse is a darling and your card is just stunning. Great card and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
