Baby House Mouse for Trysten

I was first inspired for this card back in May when the sketch was posted. The images were colored in time for the House Mouse multiple images challenge. It took until now to get it completed. I’m sure Trysten’s mom will still love it, even though her newborn is now 3 months old. I’m not sure why it takes me so long to complete some things. I can understand putting off cleaning the bathroom, but crafting? I’m usually always up to task for ‘play time’. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Color Inspiration ~ From Courtney’s Closet #53 I copped out and just pulled the blue for the inspiration.

Image Detail Now that I see the card up close, I think I’ll go back and add a bit of diamond glaze on the bottle and pacifier.
