House Mouse "Vintage" challenge

Hello everyone - one more sleep and then the chaos begins once again. How come time goes so fast whenever you want it to go real slow. My house will be full again tomorrow night and little Romeo returns (see previous posts)!! I decided I wanted to enter a couple of challenges this week and so this is challenge number two. House mouse has a great challenge this week - it is to make a vintage type card and as soon as I read that I thought of this little guy in the old fashioned tub. This card started with the image and then I saw this paper that I had in my scrap stash that had the words "A Little piece of Heaven" and I knew that I would combine the two. I colored the image with my copic markers - tub - W7, W5, W3, W1, the bunny in W5, W3, W1 and the bubbles I used E42 and E41. I used my SU oval punch to cut out the bathroom mat, added some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink and put it through my cuttlebug for texture. I added some ribbon to the sides, some quikutz tiny flowers around the sentiment, a sizzix corner punch which I also added some Walnut Stain to. To finish off the card I glued on some ivory pearls for the bubbles and a few tiny buttons for the flower centres. I was pleased with how it turned out. Thank you so very much for stopping by to visit and have a great Thursday - I know I won't have as much time when the kids all come home to make cards but I will try to get in a few a week still.
