Happy Birthday Mouse

It's Party Time over at 613 Avenue Create this week. That's our challenge for you. Remember, you may also do anything goes if you choose. Our sponsors are A Day For Daisies and Heather Ellis using DigiStamp Characters.

For my card, I am using Mouse in the House 22. I printed the digi stamp on white card stock and colored it using my Copic markers (mouse and bird - C0, C2, C4; cheek and nose - R0000, R02; blouse and balloon - RV21, RV23, RV25; candle, plate and envelope - R20, R24, R29; flame - Y000, Y19; table - E31, E33, E35). I used petal pink liquid pearls for the cake, a pink sticker for the top of the mouse's head, crystal effects for the balloon and a yellow heart for the envelope. The image and all other circles were cut using various sizes of the standard circle diecuts from Spellbinders. I used whisper white, summer sun, pink passion and real red card stock from Stampin' Up! I created the background using all the circles in random order and then placed red, pink and yellow Rox glitter crystals from Queen & Co. The sentiment is a rub-on from Stampin' Up! I really hope you get a chance to play in our challenge this week.
