House Mouse... You make me smile!

Hi folks! Here's one of the cards I made using Joanna Sheen's House Mouse 'ice cream' stamp set. Those cheeky mice are up to no good again! I tried to stick to a couple of colours, pink and brown... kept it simple with plenty of glitter! (could I possibly use any more exclamation marks??!!)
I used lots of glitter cardstock and my Nestabilities to create the mats and layers. I stamped the image with brown versafine ink and painted it with my koi watercolours. I completed flooded the label of the ice cream tub with glossy accents to make it nice and shiny. The sentiment is stamped from the set. The ribbon flower is a sticker that I have had in my stash for years, I think it was a magazine freebie. I finished the card off with a large, sheer ribbon double bow.
Ciao for now!
