Happy Birthday

HMFMC186 - Make it Masculine 

Hi there today and hope you've enjoyed the week. Today I have a birthday card for a male and am playing along with the theme at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge #186 - Make it Masculine, also posting to Simon Says Wednesday - Anything Goes and Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes theme. I truly love these cute little mice and the antics they get up to, and I found this image I'd stamped some time ago and thought it would be appropriate...getting up to mischief and having a good fun time...hope that translates to having a wonderful fun birthday. I coloured it with watercolour pencils and used a circle die to nearly cut around the whole  image and then close cut around the second mouse. I chose this background paper from my freebies stash because of the browns and diamonds for males and highlighted the sentiment with a circle too and finished off with some glitter glue on the dragonfly wings. I am also using this card as my "B" project for my friends ABC Tag/Card challenge - have made a Birthday card with Brown; a colour not much seen on my cards. Thanks for taking a peek Robyn
