Swinging in the Lilacs

After what can only be described as a very sad week in celebrity deaths (RIP David Bowie & Alan Rickman), I bring you this super cute and cheery House Mouse card. 

I really love this image from the Triple CD ROM of a little mouse swinging in the lilac. I know there are few different names of house mice, but as yet, I can't tell the difference between the little critters. Anybody know who it is?

Materials used:
Image from House Mouse Triple CD-ROM
Papers from stash
Embossing folder sentiment (Papercraft Essentials magazine)
Lace from Docrafts
6 x 6 card blank hammered in white
Buttons and pearls from stash

Challenges Entered:

(lace, dry embossing & buttons)
