Happy Birthday House Mouse

This is a dual challenge card, I decided to do the Split Coast Stampers Sketch Challenge 213 and the House Mouse Challenge (piercing was this weeks theme). I traveled away from my "comfort" colors and went for something a little bright and bold (at least for me), it seems very "birthdayish" at any rate! I pierced the sides of the plaid paper and added a simple sentiment at the bottom with SU's Think Happy Thoughts set and added a candle punch to the center and stickled the flame (I did that with the cupcake also...stickled the flame). This is a fairly simple card, it came together really quickly. Hope you enjoy and the recipe is below it! Have a "stampy" day!
  • Stamps: SU Think Happy Thoughts, House Mouse Make a Wish 02
  • Paper: My Minds Eye
  • Punches: All by EK Success
  • Other: Stickles, Paper Piercer, Pop Dot, Colored Pencils
