Back with a Mousie Card for the Basic Grey Challenge

Can't believe I have 3 cards already today.  I still have time to make one or two more.  Yahoo!!!!!  Love crafty days like today.
Anyway, this card is for the Basic Grey Challenge 47.  This week's challenge was to use stitiching, whether real or faux stitiching.  Since my sewing machine is not where it is easy to get to, thought I'd try faux stitiching, that didn't work well either.  Sooooo....I went to this cute little House Mouse image that has stitching on it.  I believe it saved me.

I used Basic Grey's Archaic 6x6 paper pad for this challenge.  Don't you just love these paper pads.  Paper is already coordinating, no thinking or trying to figure out what goes together.  Thank you Basic Grey for making my life simplier with these paper pads.

Okay, here is my card:

The stamp is House Mouse 'Sew What'.  Paper is Basic Grey Archaic. The button brads are from my stash.
The image was colored with both copics and prismacolor markers.
Thank you Basic Grey for these challenges.  Sure gets me crafting and thinking.

Thank you for visiting my little blog.  All of us enjoy you coming by and saying Hi!
God Bless and have a great evening.
