Birthday Mouse

I made this card for two challenges. First, the Victorine Originals (VO) blog challenge #14 to make a birthday card. I used my VO stamp called "Mouse with Balloon". Stop by & play...you don't have to use VO stamps (of course we'd love it if you did)...we just want everyone to have fun! Anyway, today I chose to make the mouse masculine & I used my Basic Grey Marjolaine plaid paper. (I'm already thinking about a little girl mouse with some feminine colors like pink and yellow). My sentiment is also from VO; you should check out their All Occasions set (10512X)~ it's a super value. There's 38 Occasions and 8 descriptive words like Merry and Happy making a total of 46 stamps for less than $10 when you chose the unmounted rubber option.

The second challenge is the Pals Paper Arts (PPA) #105 challenge  where we were to use the colors below.

I just love this new SU! color "Island Indigo". I'll be using a lot of it over the next two years. Yea- it is a blue & you know how I love blue.

Thanks so much for coming over to my place. Have a great week!
