House Mouse Strawberry Birthday

Today I am sharing a House Mouse card, I love this cute image and strawberries just shout summer for me. 
I coloured the image using Pro-markers, Copics and Prismacolor pencils, the little sentiment stamp is from a Hobby Art stamp set, which I thought went perfectly with the image. I matted the image onto red card stock and punched a white scallop border on the second mat. The paper is an older Magnolia one I have been hanging onto, but it was just right for this card. I added a gingham ribbon and paper pierced around the edges, finally adding a few gems. 

Products used:

  • House Mouse Stamps - Joanna Sheen - Food For Thought
  • Sentiment Stamp - Hobby Art - Butterflies Set
  • Scallop Punch - Fiskars
  • Strawberry Paper - Magnolia
  • Gems - The Hobby House
  • Ribbon - From Stash
  • Card Stock - Papermill Direct
I have been inspired to enter the following challenges:
