Happy Birthday Dear Son

Our eldest son recently celebrated his birthday.  Since he and his girlfriend have pet rats.... oh, I mean mice, I thought this image would be perfect.   The image is from the "Critter Party Set" by Penny Black which I inked up with Copics.  Using the cloud die from the "Landscape Trio" set by Mama Elephant, I thought it made a nice and interesting border.  Added the sentiment by Elizabeth Craft Designs and Candi Dots by Craftworkcards.  LOVE those dots!!!


Thanks for stopping by and have a super fun and crafty weekend.

Hi Karen! The b-day card that you made for your son is perfect since he has some pet mice. I am sure he will get a big kick out of the card. The new cloud die that you used looks like a fun die to have. I can't wait to see what other fun cards you make with it. Have a good weekend!

This is so cute Karen! I love the image but that's as close as I ever need to get to mice or rats. Fabulous layout too. I have that cloud die but never thought to use it sideways like that... that's a great idea and one for me to store in my memory bank!

Super cute!!!! Totally love the design and layout you created for this card, Karen. The idea to use the cloud die as a border is fantastic and really makes this card special. No doubt your son was thrilled and LOVED his card too!
