Good morning yall

Hello hello! today I have just a simple single card for you. I was creating some fun projects for Cricut this week and of course, as often happens when I create, I usually have extras when I get to the final point of putting my project together.
That's what happened with this cute little mouse from the Winter Frolic card. Because I didn't use christmas colors, I thought he ( she?)'d make a super cute birthday card. I used some SEI papers I had gotten in a publishing package from Scrapbook Trends recently. First I added the yellow block, then I matted it twice with the blue and pink paper. I added the white strip for the mouse to stand on, and I added the punched scallop strip underneath that.
After I pieced mousy together, it seemed a little plain, so I put the whole thing in a Once Upon A Princess folder ( dont' you love that rose print!) and embossed him with my cuttlebug. Then I used a cruddy old nail file to sand some of the white core through to show up the design more.

I added a wiggle eye, and a prima rose, then topped the present off with a TCP stamped celebrate and added a button and twine.

Hope you enjoy my card today, have a wonderful weekend.
