With a cherry on top...

For today's card I used another one of those wonderful images from Angelique at Sliekje's digi Stamps.

Isn't this image of these two little mice enjoying some cake just precious? I colored it up with my ProMarkers and then added some Diamond Glaze to the cherries and some Stickles to the whipped cream.

Here you can see that I popped the matted image up on some foam dots to give it some dimension.  I also cut a long banner, stamped "Happy Birthday" in the center of it, and then scored it so that I could tuck a short section of the banner underneath on each side.
I used some glue dots to hold it in position. I think it turned out so cute and adds lots of dimension.

The yellow chevron patterned paper that I used is from Fancy Pants Designs - The Good Life.

I had a little bit of fun on the inside, too. I used my computer to generate the sentiment, but then I hand drew two little stems and a leaf and added two small flat-backed gems for the cherries.

This adds just the right amount of sparkle to the inside. This picture truly doesn't do it justice!

A red envelope really sets off the red in this card. I am definitely going to use this image again. If you'd like to use it, you'll find it here.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
