Martinis are always a good idea.

This morning I came across a few House Mouse stamps.
They have been rather neglected of late, but I wanted to see if I could use them and still create a CAS card.
What do you think?
I played along at the House Mouse & Friends challenge, which is Amethyst, White + 1 other colour.

I stamped straight onto my card base, coloured the image with Copics,
and sprinkled Diamond Dust on the glass.
A couple of snippets of dp were used to add some colour, then a Pink Petticoat sentiment
and scattered bling finished everything off nicely.
