Party Animal + SHIMMERZ = Precious Card!

I have had these Whiff of Joy stamps for a little while and I have FINALLY had the chance to ink them up! I colored this little rascal with my copics and I used SHIMMERZ inside his ears and on his tummy. For the background, I cuttlebugged the paper and I sponged it to highlight the texture of the words and then I got out my BLINGZ (SHIMMERZ sister) and highlighted the words Happy Birthday and some of the little flowers as well. I used my super cool new flourish punch and some of these cute little flowers from Petaloo. They are so cute and pretty cheap, too! I got about 80 of them for $3.50 at the LSS and they already have the gems in the middle of them! I thought that was a pretty good deal! Of course, I had to add the glitter and gel dots for the details and
PRESTO... my card!!! I love the look on the mouse's face... he just makes me smile! I hope you all have a great day and if you get a chance, have a cupcake!!!

Cute card! I love the background you created by highlighting the words and make it all sparkly! That mouse is adorable! He looks so happy carrying that cupcake that is almost bigger than him! LOL. Love how you made him and the cupcake all sparkly!
