FS77 Birthday Mouse

Hi and happy Sunday everyone!
Today's Featured Stamper is Julia aka artystamper, over at SCS. This is one talented lady let me tell you!! I chose to case her adorable card 'Bitty Blessing'.

I thought the layout was just the cutest! You have to make at least 3 changes in a case challenge, so here are mine:
I started with a white card stock base. I stamped my image twice on white cs with chocolate chip ink. I colored my little birthday mouse with Close to Cocoa ink and a blender pen. Using colored pencils, I added some pale peach to his hands, feet, tail and ears, and a little pink in his cute cheeks. The streamers were colored with Certainly Celery and So Saffron inks and a blender pen. Of course this happy celebration needed some sparkle, so I added Stickles to the streamers and I put a little 'twinkle' in his eyes! I cut out his body and adhered it to the colored stamped image with dimensionals. I matted the stamped panel with So Saffron cs and adhered that to Certainly Celery cs, added brown ribbon and attached this to the white cs base. I cut my dp to size, scalloped the edges with my corner rounder punch, and added 3 green brads to one piece. I attached the dp with dimensionals. Finally, I stamped the sentiment with Choc. Chip ink, once on So Saffron and once on Certainly Celery. I Punched the Saffron image with a scallop punch, and the center of the Celery image with a circle punch. I adhered the Celery to the scallop with dimensionals, and added some Stickles to the candle flames.

Well, that's all for now, I think I'll go play some more! I Hope your day ROCKS, and don't forget to smile a lot! :):)
