House Mouse - Micey Nice Bank

and one more post for today - got this cute new House Mouse stamp and I just had to play.
I decided to paper piece the piggy - stamped it on several different patterned papers and then I had hard time to decide which one to use. And here is the winner - pieced from Basic Gray DP from Perhaps collection. The image is colored mainly with Copics + some shading with Prismacolor pencils. I also shaded the pieced piggy around the edges. The mat behind the image is Basic Grey too - from Olivia collection.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
