Birthday Mice

Happy Sunday! It's been another weekend of things changing and having unexpected time to craft. I am not complaining! We've had some gorgeous weather for the past few days. The weather held this week and we were able to put gravel on the new driveway on Friday so we are very happy that we now can drive up the driveway with a less than 24% grade. I have guests coming for dinner so I guess I better get a move on! I needed a female birthday card for a swap so here is what I came up with.
I like the way it turned out. I used the sketch from the Outlawz Wednesday challenge for the layout. I have a box of random things that I have punched/stamped and changed my mind and never used it. So I've decided that it's time to use some of those things up. I can probably make cards for a year and never use everything in the box, but I am going to make a concerted effort to use some of it from now on. So the punched border piece is from the box. I then cut the white cardstock to fit and decided on the stamps to use. The background paper was a piece laying on my desk and it had little flowers the same color as the punched piece although I don;t think you can see that in the picture. So I colored it up with Copics and popped the image up off the punched background and then added the flowers. Fairly easy.
I am entering these challenges:
Well, I am off to play some more before I make dinner. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Take care!
