Neapolitan Mouse on Ice

I just LOVE House Mouse Monday!!! I had no problem coming up with an idea for this week’s card (I even worked in an old challenge). I think pink and brown are SO yummy and always make me think of those little Brach’s coconut candies. Are they still around? They were a real treat when I was a kid. I still love coconut and I’m sure if one fell on my desk I’d revert to trying to bite of one layer of color at a time. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
You don't want to miss this challenge, because you could win MAD CASH!!!
Image Detail I paper pieced the umbrella, shell and mouse from a second image and added lots of Spica sparkle and Diamond glaze. Inside
