House Mouse Challenge 72 - New

Hello everyone - I am so happy because tomorrow is Canada Day here and we get a day off of work. I don't have too much planned and the weather is supposed to be rainy so I am hoping to spend some time in my craft room. Yesterday I made this card for the Monday House Mouse Challenge 72. The challenge is to make something "new or firsts" so I chose my adorable baby house mice in baby shoes and found some paper that had the words "My First Words". I used lots of "older" paper that I had laying around and the lay-out was inspired by this week's Just Magnolia challenge. I colored in the stamped image with watercolor paper and my Tombows (I find they work the best for this watercolor paper that I have). I used some distress ink for the background. I added some ribbon, prima flowers with tiny white pom-poms for the centres, and some gingham ribbon to finish off the card. I was happy with how it turned out - I like the color combination. Thank you for stopping by and having a look and if you are from Canada - have a great Canada Day tomorrow - enjoy!!!
