AND here is Jen's Sketch:
As you can see, I flipped the sketch. I learned long ago in scrapbooking that faces and heads in photographs should be pointed toward the center of the page, and I think that same rule applies to cardmaking. I think the mouse looks so much better facing the center of the card, versus the outside of the card (much more inviting!)... my only reason for flipping the sketch. So now you've learned something quirky about me today!
It's difficult to tell in the photograph, but the large background piece is the Bashful Blue Designer Paper with small white flowers from Cutie Pie. The Real Red CS piece was dry embossed with the Heart Blocks Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (non-SU).
