House mouse challenge



I have been trying to get this card done all week! I think its the fact that the weather has been so nice and its so tempting to be in the garden all day (whether busy or not!) Today has been quite cold and windy, so a great opportunity to finish this card. The House Mouse challenge finishes on Sunday night so I think I am just going to have time to enter!
The theme was 'sweet' so I have used 'make a wish' you can see all the effort going into blowing out the candle!! I have had the spotty paper for ages and don't know who made it, the 'cupcake' paper was a little gift from my 'crafty friend' Diane. I used a thick tacky glue on the cupcake before glittering, to give some texture to the icing, but you cant really tell in in the picture. The flower was made with my new Marianne Creatables, it is fab! I love the fact that you can emboss the petals. I didn't use the leaf that came with the set, thought it was too big for this card, so used a leaf punch instead.
Better hop over to House Mouse blog and enter this card quick.

Thanks for looking.
