Birthday Mouse

Good Saturday Morning...

I am the host for the Saturday Challenge today at Delightful Inspiration.

Be a "Die Cut Diva" and get out all those die cuts that you just had to have and get busy creating.  Use at least 2 die cuts and the more the merrier!  If you don't own any die cuts, you can use punches.  Share your creations with us!


This is a great image and includes a girl and a boy mouse plus some sentiments, too!  After coloring, I tried to use as many die cuts as possible.  I ended up using 2 squares, 1 lacey square and 3 circles.  I am never at a lack for using die cuts.  I use my on almost every creation, so I guess you could say that I do get my money's worth out of mine.  I added some chunky glitter to the cupcake icing and popped up the little party hat.  I colored and added red glitter to the number 3.  A great little birthday card for a little boy that is turning 3 tomorrow.

Here is a view of the inside:

**I have a hint for you...I buy most of my embellishments in white or clear and color them to match with my Copics.  I colored the thick white number three with my red marker and then added the glitter.
