The Secret Crafter Challenge is celebrating it's blogoversary this their theme is 'Celebration'..and they have some fabby prizes on offer too! The Creative Card Crew also has 'Celebrations' as their theme this week, so I've made a birthday card (lots of birthdays this month!) using the Sketch Saturday Challenge sketch...oops...have only just noticed the pets theme...but there are some people who keep mice as pets! lol I used 'Henry - Celebrating Mouse' (by Whiff of Joy), and some of my favourite '29th Street Market' papers by My Mind's Eye. I embossed the plain reverse side of one of the sheets with the 'Swiss Dots' and 'Spots & Dots' folders, then sanded to reveal the white core. I also inked and distressed the edges of all the papers. The ribbon and flowers are from Poppicrafts, and the sentiment is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts.

Gorgeous card Helen, and Henry is adorable. I love those papers - keep seeing them on your cards and keep resisting (something to do with a stash diet LOL!!)
