Here comes the Spring - maybe!

Isn't this House Mouse adorable?  He is from a Joanna Sheen unmounted sheet that DH bought me for my birthday.  I'm sticking to my stash diet and enjoying using the things I have, so out came this lovely spring image for colouring.  I've used the sketch from Create4Fun for my card, colouring with Copics, Stickles, Glossy Accents and some Distress Ink for the background.  The dotty paper is a Bearly Mine digi download, the green DP is Prima.  I've used a Cuttlebug folder then Distress Ink on white cardstock cut our with a Marianne Creatables die.  The sentiment is computer generated, I like this one for Get Well cards.
My card is for the following challenges:
Create4Fun - sketch
Quirky Crafts - dots, embossing
Sweet Stampin' - spring flowers
Cupcake Craft Challenges - McDonald had a farm - OK this may not look like a farm animal to you, but have you ever known a farm that doesn't have mice? :)
C.R.A.F.T. - roll of a die
Cute Card Thursday - banish the blues
For Fun Challenges - spring or winter
Papertake Weekly  - anything goes + flowers
StampsRUs - animals
