The Usual Suspects

Happy Bonfire Night everyone - if you're having a bonfire and fireworks have a great time and keep safe.
I am making up a little bed, in the downstairs loo, no.. not for hubby!!  - it's where the dog runs to, when she's feeling stressed!!

It's time for another challenge at the CES Challenge Blog.
It's my week to host and I haven chosen the theme...

Song or Film Inspired

It seems like a tricky challenge, but trust me, it's not that bad :-))
There are lots of options and I really hope you will join in and give it a go.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

My card was inspired by one of my favourite films - The Usual Suspects. 
One of the tag lines for the film is
                   'Five Criminals. One Line Up. No Coincidence'
and it just so happens there are five rascals on this House Mouse stamp!!

 After I stamped the image, I cut around some of the mice and the jar, then mounted it onto my DP, so that the DP became the background.  
Does that make sense?? You can see from the pic what I'm trying to**

I used a 6 x 6 'on the edge' card blank, some Prima flowers, Card Candi, black gems and a Craftwork Cards Mini Message - all available at Crafty Emma's Store.
The DP is Bo Bunny, Timepiece.
