House mouse and friends - pastels

Just sneaking in a third post for today before I toddle off to bed. The current challenge over at House mouse and friends Monday challenge is pastels which closes soon. Fortunately I had cut out some Housemouse images from the Joanna Sheen CD-ROM when I had my fussy cutting binge the other week and so thought this one in my favourite colour of pastel would work. Apologies for the poor photo, it's actually lighter than it looks, but a bulb has gone in the kitchen which wasn't helping!
I decoupaged up the image and added glossy accents to the centre of the feeder. I used lilac and kraft card to layer up the image. The leaves were cut out of pale green coredinations cards, it's actually a corner die (possibly crafty Ann?) but I snipped it to lie straight. I added a flower made with my ancient daisy punch and a dazzler to the centre of the flower. I'm off to bed now as it's half ten, but I keep laughing at the last leg on TV so might have to stop up for a bit! Sweet dreams to you all x
