House mouse Birthday card

Hiya Everyone!

I can't believe it's after 10 o'clock already - where has today gone? I have done well today though as I've made 3 cards Woo hoo! 2 are DT cards so I can't show you those I'm afraid but I have made this little cutie with one of my new house mouse stamps. I thought I'd alternate with my new LOTV as I love both of them and have so many new ones of both it's difficult to choose. I opted for this one purely because there is a challenge based on chocolate so I thought I could colour the cake brown and an idea was born.

The house mouse image has been coloured in with my promarkers and I have used glossy accents on the frosting which looks better in real life as it looks a bit odd with the camera flash Lol! I love glossy accents and use it on all sorts of stuff. It's great on eyes and noses etc - and it's cheap as chips!
The papers are from Summer Driggs "Almond and apples" free downloadable kit - her link can be found on my sidebar - I can not recommend her stuff enough and can not wait for her next kit!

I have made this not only for loads of challenges that were posted today but this will be a Birthday card for my close friend whose birthday is in a few weeks - multi-tasking!
