Tweet Kisses - again

Another House Mouse card - using the same sketch as the previous post, but this one is for an exchange on the House Mouse group.   I like everything about the card except the color of the flowers that I used.  I am thinking now it should have been closer in color to the violets between the mouse and the bird.  I have purple flowers but none that color.  From now on I must remember to check my flower stash before I color in an image!  The feathers, however, I think work well.  I had pearls in that area first and they did not work at all.  I love the DP and wish I had gotten more than one sheet of it.

Maybe it is that I am not as comfortable putting flowers on the HM images as I am on the Magnolia images.  The Maggies just seem to take to all sorts of bling.

I love doing the inside of the cards also. The feather made this one a lot of fun!
