Gerda Steiner Mouse Coffee Card

I apologize if you are getting tired of all the coffee-themed cards, but I really enjoy supporting the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog hops, and the Spring hop is on this week, so I've been busy!
This card features a digi stamp by Gerda Steiner. She creates such cute critters!
This card is an A2 card base, and since this is the Spring CLCM blog hop, I chose a floral design for the background. I printed out my digi, die cut the little guy with a Waffleflower Lacey Layers die and then colored him up with Copic and MEXPY markers. I tried to match the pink and green in the background flowers with the colors I chose for his tail, nose and coffee cup. In hindsight, I wish I would have chosen a lighter gray for him. I'll try to remember that next time I color him.
The "Java Great Day" sentiment is from Bugaboo stamps.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
