The House Mouse &  Friends Lots of Layers HMFMC #171 challenge is hosted by Simon Says Stamps

I decided to share one of the cute little happy hoppers at the beach.  I paired it up with a small paper bag perfect for a gift card. 

The image is a House Mouse Design called Umbrella Nap.   I colored the image using STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell watercolor Pencils.    I distressed the edge sof the pattern paper with a distressing tool and brown dye ink.

The sentiment is from the Stampendous Angel Wings Perfectly Clear Stamps.

Have a happy week!
