Glittery birthday card


When I first looked at this stamp, I immediately thought "Valentine's" or "Love" would be the appropriate theme that it would fall under. But, then, I saw the cute little birthday hat on the little mouse. That's when I was inspired to create this Birthday card. Rather than use pink or red for the glitter hearts, I thought it was more festive to use primary colors, instead. Stickles, as a final touch, makes the "Glitter Hearts" come to life. Thanks for stopping by, today!


Stamp: House Mouse by Stampa Rosa, Riveting by Stampin Up
Ink: Memento Black, COPIC markers
Papers / Cardstock: White, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue
Accessories: Large and Small star punches by Stampin Up, Stickles
