Birds of a Feather.....

Hello everyone: I have a cute card I finally finished, this image from House Mouse has been in my stash of "unfinished" for a while now and today, I found a few challenges that fit just right.

Ok, most people who know me, know that I love mice, specially the House Mouse siblings, (the real mice are adorable too but, only in their natural habitat, right?)
Anyway, this is a House Mouse stamp called "Feathered Friends".  I stamped this image onto a panel of Strathmore mixed media paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers and an aqua painter. I added a few highlights with Prismacolor pencils.
The sentiment is from my stash of greetings and the feathers from a Power Poppy set called "Marcella's Mix Tape Vol. 1"
Ribbon is from SU but it's retired.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Best Day Ever.

I'm linking my card to the following challenges.

Hugs from Maria.
