House Mouse Challenge #39

Whew!! Is it just me or does it take everyone hours to make a card?!! I can't whip one out in 30 minutes or even an hour. Oh, well. I needed to make a birthday card for my Aunt. Not sure exactly how old she will be but I know she's in her 80's. She lives in Florida so I don't get to see her very often. She loves mice so I know she will love the House Mouse stamps. The house mouse challenge for this week is to make a birthday card so I thought I would enter it in the challenge.

I colored the stamp using prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits and I covered the candles with blue glitter glue.

I stamped one of the mouse out twice colored it and raised it with foam dots.
Thanks for looking! Ya'll have a wonderful day!
