ATC Congrats

 Our lovely Katie  got a promotion  at her work and I have made this little ATC to celebrate the fact.The little mouse I used is so happy he
cannot contain himself   and  the joy overflows . So it is with Katie. Congrads hon, we are so happy for you. I  made  a card to go with it so I would have room to write a little note to her. You just slip the ATC under  the little  green and blue rectangle and the large flower keeps it from falling through.  For those reading this post who might not know what an ATC is, it is an Artist Trading  Card (like a hockey card) and is   2 1/2" x 3 1/2".  On the back you should give it a name and sign it.

Card details: the stamp is a House Mouse and Friends stamp, the paper is all from  Stampin Up  except for the blue  which was from a friend (origin unknown - the paper not the friend) :). I used Prismacolor markers to colour the mouse and Stampin'  Up  ink to sponge  in the clouds. I added thin blue ribbon to the yellow stripes which had been dry embossed using Stampin' Up Sizzix 'textured impressions stripes', small pearls and a few  dew drops to add some extra interest.
