House Mouse Birthday Card

Morning everyone, last day of the week. :-)  Well today I have a card especially for Polka Doodles as they have a giveaway of Letraset AquaMarkers.  Now after seeing these on Jak Heath's blog I would definitely like to give them a try.  So this is my entry into the giveaway at Polka Doodles which closes 29th August.  As part of the entry requirements you have to post a photo of a papercraft creation using a watercolour technique.

So I dug out my watercolour pencils and aqua pen last night and coloured up this cute House Mouse picture.  Don't these mice look so content and full.  I have added glitter to the icing of the cake.  I then layered up the image and added it to a square card which I had rounded the corners on.  Also layered up the background paper.  Sorry don't know the name of the stripey paper as this was the last scraps of it.  Used a rub-on for the greeting and finished with two blue bling.

This card is also perfect for the challenge I set over at Craftmad this week.  'Cupcakes'.
Also would like to enter this in the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge which is 'The letter B'.  I am going for Birthday.
