Literally Giant!

I have a simple little one layer card for this week's 'Books/Literature' challenge over at Less is More to share today. I didn't think I had any suitable stamps, but then remembered this adorable Penny Black stamp called 'Literally Giant!' featuring some cute wee mice writing what will no doubt be a best seller! I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then added some inky footprints to the pages.
