Two Bday Challenges, A Sketch and One Sweet Mouse

I'm not sure if you're like me, but I can never have too many birthday cards ~ I actually found two birthday challenges to enter for my card along with this great sketch at Atlantic Hearts (I did follow it quite loosely, I hope that's okay) ~ so here goes, Atlantic Hearts Sketch #174, Seize The Birthday & Stampin' Royalty #343! Thanks for all that you do to help us get our Mojo going :-)

This little guy is the sweetest, I can't help but smile every time I look at this card ~ hope my recipient feels the same way! This entire stamp set is a must! Let me know if I can help you with any of your questions or Stamping' Up needs ~ and YES, they are NEEDS ~ thanks so much for popping by today, have a wonderful weekend!

I created a different background from each of the Masks ~ here are the other cards that I created! I forgot to take this picture before I placed my cards in their protective covers ~ sorry!

Card Base ~ Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 ~ score at 4 1/4 ~ Using Marina Mist Stampin’ Pad and the desired Mask, gently ink your card front to create your own decorative design
