An Easter House Mouse

Great googly moogly! I do believe the miserable rain is finished! I think I even saw a hint of sun this morning! There is nothing better to start a day, than sunny skies, flowers blooming, and the promise of 84 degrees on Saturday. Can you believe there were snowflakes mixed into that rain yesterday?
Anyway, on to my card. When I saw the House Mouse Monday Challenge this week, I was a little bummed, because I do not have any Easter stamps. My smarty pants DD came up with this idea. I must say I kind of like it. There really is not much to say as the image takes up most of the card. I colored it with Copics and I believe I used almost every color I own (LOL).
Most of you know, that the dog is chasing after a bone. Well, I decided that an Easter Egg would get him on his way! That egg and the few I hid in the grass, are from an older PSX stamp and I cut them out. My sentiment is from Rupa Shevde's new set called Spring Has Sprung by Gina K. Designs. The fringe border is from one of those new Prima clear stamp sets with the gems included. My only addition are the pearls to the fringe.

I really hope you like this Easter card. Comments are always welcome!
