House Mouse Birthday Wish

It was a bit cool and breezy today so I decided to spend time in my craft room catching up on cards.  I had to stop for a bit to settle a cat fight between our big tom cat, Boo, and another cat that made the mistake of coming into our yard.  I was running around in my slippers, my daughter was trying to separate them with an old sponge mop, and the dog was running around thinking we were all having a party.  Where is the video camera when you need it?

I was putting away a few stamps when I spotted this cute little House Mouse and remembered that House Mouse and Friends’ challenge this week was Make Wishes Come True.  I just had to quick stamp this precious image and make a card.  I stamped it with Timber Brown Stazon ink and colored it using Tombow Markers and a Dove Blender.  One of my favorite birthday cakes was a confettie cake, so I added little colored polkadots to the piece of cake.

The two designer papers are Basic Grey, layered on teal, pink and yellow distressed layers.  I used three different dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I created the pink frame by cutting out a section from the Lattice 1 frame die and then used the Anastasia Border die for the teal lacy border along the bottom and the Cuties 1 die to create the pink flower.  I added some Sunny Daze glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle to the center of the flower.

Hope your day was as pleasant as mine.
