Eat Cake

Hi Everyone! We have a beautiful Fall day here today. We are finally getting a good chill in the air. Hopefully the leaves will start turning more now that we are getting colder weather. I want to share a card I made using this cute House Mouse image. I am always in need of birthday cards so this image is perfect for it. This little mousey sure looks fat and happy! I used a lot of my favorite things on this card, among which are flowers, ribbon, cord, dies and glitter! I sparkled the icing on the cake using Bubblegum glitter, courtesy of Sparkle N Sprinkle. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your day is filled with good things!

I had this pink cord that went perfectly with the patterned paper. I made the little rose out of pink felt and added a rhinestone to the center.
