A Happy House Mouse Birthday

Just a quick post today as want to get this card entered in a challenge over at Cards for Men. I don't make many male cards but this one is for my sons birthday later this month. I know this is his favourite House Mouse as he happened to catch sight of the decoupage sheet some time ago. Mind you the thought of a jar of chocolate chips probably had something to do with it!!

I had the papers free with a magazine - I think one is from Raspberry Road Designs - but being spots they've sat in the bottom of a box and I only found them yesterday when I was doing a bit of sorting. I don't seem to be able to work with spots or stripes very well, but I am really pleased with the way this card has turned out. I finished it off with a sentiment which I made on the computer.




I shall enter this in the following challenges
Cards For Men challenge 'A Sketch For You'
Ladybug Crafts challenge ''Monochrome / Tonal'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'Let's Celebrate'
Allsorts challenge 'For Men Only'
The Crafty Pad challenge 'Anything Goes'
