Happy Birthday Sam - Meljen's Designs Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
  Another fun challenge for you today from Meljen's Design.  Birthday cards!!! Woo HOO - another great way to add to your stash of cards that you always NEED!  I colored this adorable little Birthday Cup Mouse found here at Whimsy Stamps with my Copics.
I fussy cut him and used some circle nestabilities to create two circles in some Cricut Beyond Birthdays stack and a stack from Cosmo Cricket.  I adhered the little mouse to those circles.  Next, I cut out more of the same paper for my sentiment.  I used paper from the DCWV Sweet Stack for the background.
I really like the background paper so in an effort to leave it so you could see it - I just added a bit of white ribbon with a little purple button brad.  I also added a few little blue gems.

My nephew Sammy is turning one year older on the 26th - so this was a perfect time to make his birthday card!  I hope he loves it!  Please join us for a fun challenge and one that boosts that stash at Meljen's Design!

Happy Birthday Sam!
