House Mouse challenge

I'm back again with another challenge card, this time for the House Mouse &Friends challenge which this week is to use multiple images.
I really struggled with this one! I only have 7 HM stamps one of which is a Christmas one and 3 are really old and were made by Stampa Rosa before House Mouse stamps were all Stampabilities so I don't think they would be any use and they are too big to use more than once anyway. So I was left with 3 to choose from! I decided to go with the ballerina Amandaand then use the little jumpin for joy Monica because she is nice and little to use with a bigger image.
What do you think? I'm really not sure. The jury is out on this one. I love the papers and the images but not sure if I have done them justice. And I handcut the cicle and scallop so they are not the straightest or should I say roundest lol.
Oh well everyone has different tastes I suppose so I'm going to enter it for this weeks challenge anyway. It might grow on me.

Recipe:

Stamps: House Mouse Jumpin for Joy Monica and Twinkle Toes Amanda
Colouring: Distress inks on Amanda and Copics on Monica
Papers: Basic Grey 2 scoops and Gypsy
Embelishments: Swirls cut from Cricut, handmade flower, chipboard flower, spacer and pearls from my stash.

Thanks for taking the time to look. Hope you are haing a fab day.

Lora,

First of all, sorry for the deleted comment above this actual comment. I am not sure how I managed to goof up a comment, but somehow..... So,

I think it turned out really nice. The color scheme compliments the stamps that you used perfectly. Really pretty. And having to whip up something handmade((the scallop and circle)), well, that's even better!!

Enjoy your day,
Stephanne
