Tall House Mouse Order

Tall and thin...oh, if only I were describing myself! haha! This week's House Mouse Challenge calls for a tall and thin card. Hard to find a HM image that fits the thin description, but here is the one I ended up using. Love the expression on the little critter's face. For some reason I was on a turquoise kick and a lot ended up on this card. Craft CS base, cut 7x7 and folded in half. Image was colored with Prismacolor pencils, blended with baby oil. Waterfall Stickles added to the cup. Cut out with round Nestabilities, as was the tissue paper mat. The little flowers were cut with two different Cuttlebug dies, cupped, and Stickles added to the centers. The upper corner looked a bit bare so I stamped the scroll up there and added gold Liquid Pearls to it. Sentiment printed from computer, cut with oval Nestabilities and attached with foam tape.

Stamps: House Mouse Feeling Rosy, Verve Filigree Fantasy
Paper: Florentine - Venetian; gold embossed by ??, The Paper Studio. Tissue paper.
Ink: Stazon, Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Liquid Pearls, Stickles, foam tape.
