Mousey hearts

Now it's Valentine season, but I wanted this to be a more-than-that-occasion card, so I let the picture say whatever it wanted without a sentiment.  SO  while it could be a valentine, it could be for a special birthday, a celebratory occasion like an engagement or anniversary (because of the champagne cork), or just to send someone a little love.  Instead of flowers it kind of looks like a bunch of hearts!

Image: Penny Black, paper pieced and coloured with pencils. I masked out the bubble on mousey's nose.
Heart balloon die: Poppy stamps, with one heart paper pieced.
Strings are hand drawn
