A Micey Nice Birthday

Good evening all, hope you've all had a restful weekend. I've actually managed to get in my craft room this afternoon. Its not been the same since my hubby put his computer in here, I can't get a look in, he's always in, sat at the computer and as much as I love him, I like to craft alone, with the door closed and listen to music, not the sounds of him playing action games. Oh well rant over, I have made a card today.
I followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers #143 by Claudia. The papers are from a Papermania pad in shades of brown, cream and a little pink. I stamped some swirls on brown card using Versamark to get a watermark effect, for the first layer.

I used this adorable House Mouse stamp from the Ice Cream set and coloured with Promarkers.

I also stamped and coloured this cutie off the Dip set and cut him out to layer onto card. He's part of a larger image, but I used him as I thought he looked like he'd just fell in the tub of ice cream.

I made an easel style card and carried the sketch all through.
I decided to keep the embellishing to a minimum as I think there is quite enough going on, so I used a couple of strips of ribbon across the card and finished with a little ribbon bow.
These are the challenges that inspired this card;
Simon says Stamp - Coffee and cream
House Mouse - Favourite stamp
Cupcake - Cake and Ice cream
Spoon ful of Sugar - #140 Birthday wishes
Ribbon girl - #5 Cream, pink and brown

Thanks for looking, I'm off to get things ready for school tomorrow. Bye x
