Happy Birthday, Mouse!!!

Well, when I hung out in my craft room on Saturday, I made this card, I consider this my piece de resistance!!

So without further ado here is the sketch that it was based upon –

MFTWSC191

I entered this challenge over at My Favorite Things – This week’s sketch # 191

This is my take on this sketch:

My husband says this is his favorite card of the ones I have made in the last few months.  He kept going on and on about how cute it was!! I know I sure had fun making it!!

I used the large polka dot embossing folder from Stampin’ Up!, my 1 and 3/4 circle punch and this adorable stamp set from My Favorite Things called  Mouse in the House – It’s your birthday!! I fussy cut around the balloon and bird with mail and used stampin dimensionals to put them on the card!!  I used Basic Black ink and used my watercolor pencils/blender pens to color in the cute images!  And here is the inside of the card:

Pictured here is what the inside of the card says and a full picture revealing a birthday cake for the mouse!!!

This card was so delightful to make and it was fun to see my husband think it was so cute!! So glad that I made 4 of this beautiful, charming card!! ( I am a teeny bit proud of it)  Why don’t you let me know what you think!!

    Oh, this is so adorable. That mouse reminds me of Angelina Ballerina–is she still around? Super cute design and perfectly colored.

    This is completely adorable, Taunya and I have to agree with Joyce. It brings me back to the days Alexa was obsessed with Angelina Ballerina. So sweet with the circular opening and I love the touch of purple!

    Hey Taunya!! I love your embossed big dots background. I just ordered and received that folder. I can’t wait to use it. I love the color you used. Very pretty. Your mouse and little birdie are so adorable as well. All in all a great birthday card. Great job.

    Okay, a whole new level of ‘sweet’ is happening in this post! First up is your wee mouse is absolutely darling, and all the more so when we see he’s nibbling on cake! Second is your ‘little birdie’ complete with envelope and balloon (eeee…). Third are the polka-dots and stripes, and finally…the fact that your husband loves it!! Super awesome!! Seriously, what an amazing guy he is to let you know he thinks this is cute…and how right he is! Love it oodles! Three challenges…excellent!! Just so you know: your comments have my heart singing….just tilt you head and you’ll hear!! You’re such a gift!
    Hugs~c

    Your post title caught my eye…when I saw Birthday and Mouse in the same sentence I had to wonder if you were speaking of Mickey Mouse and I know his birthday is not until November 18th. LOL
    This is just too darn cute and I love your adorable little critter, even if it is not Mickey. Really makes for a very sweet card.
