Use it Up Birthday Card

Hello Friends

My Buddy Sandra has been a good influence on me and I have been using up some of my  bits 'n pieces that I have had in my Craft Room for a while including stamped images, papers, cards, Snippets and the like.  Here is a Birthday Card I have made using a stamped House Mouse image which my good Buddy sent to me a while ago.

Coloured in with my Copics and a little sparkly embossing powder to add some sparkle to the icing.
The card itself came in a kit from a well known TV Shopping channel with three letters a loooong time ago, and I am not keen on them because they are pre-printed so you have to choose carefully what you are going to put on them but I think this image works.  A few old brads and some ribbled cardstock (which is straight honest) and a little Banana Frog sentiment stamped and cut with a Nestie.  

I am linking this up to the Playground as there are a few Snippets used in this card.  

Thanks for popping by.  The Treehouse is now complete I believe though it needs some decorating and finishing off inside.  Just as well as the weather is sooo pants now!
