House Mouse ATC

When I first saw that the challenge at House Mouse and Friends Challenge blog was to create an ATC, I pulled out a bunch of HM stamps that could work for that little space.  I decided on this cute little image, called "Oh Happy Days" when my cell phone rang...my ring tone is Billy Idol's "Dancin' With Myself".  I used to play that song really loud on my stereo and spaz out (couldn't be called dancing) while I did house work.  So I stamped little Monica and colored her with Copics.  Clipped the corners, sponged with Distress Inks and added the tiny punched butterflies along with their dancing Stickles trails.  Thought the sentiment was perfect, and stamped it with Sepia.

Just beautiful, and how refreshing to see that delightful sentiment worded correctly - I've seen too many with "like no-one's watching" instead of "as if" and it always makes me cringe LOL
Your colouring and inking are perfect.
Thanks for joining us at HM&F - come back on Monday for the next challenge!
