S&S Holiday Challenge (Spring)

Today's Stars and Stamps challenge is to make a card using a groundhog or other rodent... since groundhog stamps aren't exactly thick on the ground, I dug out one of my precious RAKed housemouse images and had a go at it. I don't use them often because my colouring sucks! I used kiddy markers because the lines are so fine and I wanted light colours. It doesn't look quite as patchy and high-contrast IRL as it does on the scan. I did my best to fix the colour in photoshop but it's still not really accurate. The sentiment is an embossed sticker, and it needed a little something more so I made a 3D flower from assorted punchies, and used a few tiny scraps to embellish the other corner.
