Penny Black Mouse Birthday Card

On Wednesday night I started this card following the sketch on Friday Sketchers Challenge #99. I finished putting the card together this afternoon. Don't know if I've ever taken four days to do a card before! LOL

I'm also entering it into the colour challenge on SPCC Challenge #44 - Gable Green, Green Galore and Dusty Durango. It was hard to put these colours together! After looking through my stamps, I chose this House Mouse one from the Penny Black "Micey Day" set. It is coloured with Copic markers, and I applied Crystal Glaze to the spoon for dimension.

The green layer is run through the Crafts Too Embossing Folder "Daisies", the flourish is a die by Quickutz, label punch by SU, Nesties Plain and Scalloped Rectangles, and flowers. Machine plain and zigzag stitching around the layers.

Inside the card, the verse reads, "Have a micey nice day!"
