Birthday Cupcake

I was so excited when I won Lol's House Mouse candy a few weeks ago...I love the images...and have received some in swaps and RAKs, but this would be my first House Mouse stamp! So, I thought that the first card I make with it, should be for the House Mouse & Friends Challenge, where the theme this fortnight is 'Vintage'. The stamp I got is called 'Birthday Cupcake'...perhaps not the best image to use for this thene, but I inked and distressed the edges to try and create an aged look. The papers are all from the '29th Street Market' collection by My Mind's Eye, and I made some 'lolipop' flowers using my Nesties.


I'm also entering this card into the following Challenges:

Ohhh Helen, I really like the distressed look to your card. And those flowers are just so fun. I am going to have to use your idea. I love your image and how you colored it up! Great job on the sketch this week.

Hi Helen I just love your card it's super cute. That image of the mice is really lovely and that distressing is well done and your flowers look so good. I wish I could distress, mine usually ends up in the rubbish bin LOL. Thanks so much for joining us this week at SSW and hope to see you again soon.
