House Mouse Birthday Card - Pick 3 Challenge

Yep, again I have used Denise's wonderful challenge to create a card. This card I gave to a friend I have known since school. I have used SU textured grey card for the base card. Then Stampin Up Design Papers called 'Walk in the Park'. The image was sent to me by Cathy from Cathy's Creative Corner isn't it cute. I have coloured it with my aqua pen, SU inkspots and watercolour pencils. Added a little glitter to the icing and punched out three circles in the corner. I needed the circles for the challenge. Added some ribbon that I received from Blue Edge Crafts. A paper clip with her age......I couldn't find an appropriate greeting. ;-)

Only need one more entry and then you are in the chance for a prize.

Here is the list I had to choose from for the 'Pick Three Challenge'.
I have highlighted the items I have used.
1. 5 rectangles of any size
2. Red, caramel and dark brown colors
3. lace
4. anything metal
5. Leaf embellishment
6. Decorative edged scissors
7. Bottle cap
8. 3 circles of any size
9. An image of anything that could be planted
10. a border punch
