Valentine for Sister

I have so many critter stamps from Penny Black and I haven't used them for a few years. Time to bring them out and give them some love! LOL.   My sis and I both don't have phobias about little grey house mice and this one is cute binging on a cupcake.

I coloured the image with copic markers and decorated the cupcakes with stickles glitter, pearl pen and crystal glaze. Also a bit of stickles glitter around the tag on the top of the box.  I cut out the image with a spellbinder die and sponged a bit of Spun Sugar distress ink around the edge.  It is popped up on a doily heart by Cottage Cutz (CC4x4-155) and also a round diecut doily that friend gave me last year.

The background paper layer of x's and o's (My Mind's Eye) was cut at the bottom with a heart border punch. Also added some paper flowers, a dotted ribbon bow, and some sparkly hearts for embellishments.
