House Mouse Challenge Sketch & Blog Hop

I've made this card for my cousin's son's birthday - he's 5yrs old next week and just started school, so I thought this "Bedtime Stories" image was perfect! It's coloured with Promarkers. The spotted & diamond paper is from the Dovecraft Masculine paper pack, and I've added some old buttons I found lurking in a drawer, some little metallic-looking embellishments & some twine. The green punched edge was made using my Martha Stewart scallop border punch. I've inked all the way around the card with bronze pigment ink.

Challenges I'm entering:
A Spoon Full of Sugar #122 - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Animal Magic
Just Cute Bears #35 - Punch It
Corrosive Challenge #82 - Clean up the dust
Totally Gorjuss #48 - Wild Thing
Creative Cottage Challenge #23 - Birthday Boy
