House Mouse Purple Dreams

I'm trying to get caught up on the House Mouse & Friends Challenges (they do a weekly challenge on Mondays). I love the stamp line (and own quite a few) so I try to incorporate the images with other challenges when I can. Plus, they are lots of fun to color and I'm building my Copic skills (or at least trying). :o) (Please see the Ins and Outs for the challenge links and feel free to join in the fun).
The Sketch (House Mouse & Friends)
Inspiration Grape Fun ~ Use purple as primary color and incorporate 5 circles (365 Cards) May Flowers (Banana Split Sunday)
My Card
Image Detail
As I mentioned yesterday I love using Spica pens to add a bit of glitz to my images. In this image I highlighted the leaf 'veins', the mouse's nose, and a few spots in the flowers.
