Snuggled in a sunflower

Here we have .......... another rubbish photo from Susan. I'm really trying (as my OH would say) but I'll have to admit defeat, I just can't take a decent photo. I tried this one with a white background instead of my usual black but it's no better. Oh well, you get the general idea.

This gorgeous House Mouse has found himself a lovely sunflower to snuggle into and seems to be happily dreaming away, probably of cheese!

I debossed the green panel, mainly because last time I embossed pearlescent card it split the pearlescent layer and I ended up sanding it. This design didn't lend itself to sanding and I'm actually quite pleased with the way it looks.

I've followed Heidi's sketch at Moving Along With The Times:

and here's my interpretation:

DP is from K & Co's Daisy pad
Green pearlescent card from stash, Cuttlebug embossed with Jules Jewells folder
Image is House Mouse and coloured with Promarkers
Yellow and green pearlescent card for mats from stash
Ribbon from stash
Card Candy from Craftwork Cards and coloured with Promarkers

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
