Mouse with Sunflower

Summer time means lots of birthdays for me.  All six of my grandchildren have Summer birthdays.  This card is made for a grandson that loves "rodents".  He doesn't like the real kind but loves them in pictures and stuffed ones.  Guess that is better than snakes!

The stamp used for this card is Tina Wenke's "Mouse with Sunflower" by Stampavie.  As soon as I saw it I knew I had to purchase it for my grandson's birthday card.  The design was stamped three times.  The butterfly and sunflower were cut out from two images so I could add them with dimensionals.  The image was colored with Copic markers.  I used a white Inkessentials marker to draw lines on the shirt.  All kids love glitter so had to add some to the flower and butterfly.

The image was cut out with a Nestability Labels I.  The panel below it was embossed with one of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders called "Scrollwork". It was sponged with orange ink to bring out the scroll design.  Buttons were added to each corner. 

The background paper was in my scrap bin so I don't know which company it is from.  A strip of "scrap" ribbon was added along the bottom and the greeting from MTME was added. 

The Stampavie stamp and Cuttlebug folder were purchased from Joan's Gardens.

Have a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
