House Mouse Birthday in Blue

Don't you wish you could celebrate your birthday in a  tea cup, this little guy (his name is Maxwell) is sure happy to do so!   This is a very CAS type card.  Tempting turquoise is one of my favourite colours  and I usually end up combing it with white as I did with this card. This was the first time I have used one of these delightful tags from Spellbinders, I could become very fond of them..

Card details:

Stamps: Stampabilities  'Feeling Rosy'
Papers:   whisper white, tempting turquoise
Colour Medium: Prismacolors Markers
Other:    spellbinders standard classic circles and classic standard circles ,  flower punches, recollections mini brads, MS branch punch,  cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, stickles  on the flower centers
