House Mouse birthday card


I adore House Mouse stamps yet have only managed to acquire 4 of them. It is a friend's birthday soon so I decided to use one of the stamps to make her card. I stamped the image in black staz-on and coloured it in using watercolour pencils. They are just a cheapy set but I think I need to invest in better ones that blend and smudge better. All recommendations gratefully received.
I then matted the coloured image onto some red/pink paper from Funky Fairy and matted this onto the card blank. I finished off with a Happy Birthday peel-off. I hope she likes it :0)
