Ink: Memento black, Copics, Almost Amethyst, Versafine Black. Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, white flocking, Papertrey Poppy grosgrain ribbon.

For this week's challenge.....

The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to go the opposite from last week's challenge and think "teeny tiny" when making your creation this week!! ;) Please feel free to interpret this as you see fit!!

What could be more teeny tiny than a baby mouse? This House Mouse stamp is one of my favorites for baby cards and that's how this card started out -- as a baby card for a soon-to-arrive baby boy. I wanted happy colors that weren't the typical baby pallette, so I went with this fun DP by Basic Grey. The sketch is inspired by Mojo Monday week #124. A bit of flocking makes the cottonball touchably soft:

After completing the card, I realized it really would work as a 'Welcome to your new home' card, too!

Another gorgeous gorgeous card, wow your attention to detail is supurb, I just love how you can match those colours up like you do, when I do a card I only ever use white cardstock and struggle for adding the colours, I love visiting your site and going to go and make a card, thanks for inspiring me once again.
