Monochromatic Mice

I love this House Mouse stamp, which I think is called "Are we nearly there yet?".  I was lucky enough to win it after winning a challenge on House Mouse and Friends.  This week their challenge is Monochromatic and I thought this was perfect to make an Autumn brown monchromatic card.  I've coloured with copics and edged with Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy and Old Paper then further distressed the edges. The DP is from Joanna Sheen's Giordano Puppies & Kittens CD, I've added Distress Ink to its edges as well and the ribbed brown card is a recycled card from my local Craft Shop.  Flowers made with a Woodware punch.
After discovering CD Sunday's Challenge and entering something that wasn't totally monochrome, I'm having another go with something that does stick to the challenge:).  I'm building a collection of CDs and anything that makes me use them has to be good!

My card is for the following challenges:
House Mouse & Friends - monochromatic
Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes
CD Sunday Challenge - monochrome
