My Favorite House Mouse

BEWARE!  This post is picture happy! :)  I have had fun creating this card, and it was so photogenic (hehe) that I decided to post a few pics!

This is one of my favorite House Mouse stamps, and it really goes well together with the black and white color scheme.

I have also done some paper piecing on the "eaten" strawberry on the far right, although it is somewhat difficult to see!  

Here's a pic of the inside:
