Just who can turn down a wee House Mouse card, NO ONE!! And this one is the cutest the way you used it. I admire anyone who can color so well with colored pencils; I love the look, especially on animals. I can just hear the HM saying, "Thank You, Lord!"; that was the perfect saying for your scene. The color yellow was one of the things that hit my eye first--the bulb, bow and yellow cardstock fit right in with the orange base card. It was coordinated perfectly and I loved it when you offset the top layer to the right so it catches the looker's eye. Well done!!

This is so cute. It would be great to color for those that live in cold regions. Beautiful colors.
