House Mouse a little cutey...

This morning I am sharing a card with you that I have made using a House Mouse design and I love it... These images are so cute and lend themselves to be crafted into beautiful cards...
I have coloured the image with my pro-markers (again!) and I have inked the edges of the image with a dauber. I then added glitter to the image to create that extra little dimension to the card and it that extra bling.
I then decided that I would use one of my craftwork cards blanks that I purchased at Harrogate - if you know me well you will understand that for me this is completely stepping out of the box I do not do 'shape' cards... For the DSP background, I drew on the reverse of the paper to get the same edging as was used on the card.
I like this effect I have to say...
I then added a craft border to the left edge of the card and tied some cherry cobbler seam binding in a bow to this - I have to say I love seam binding ties to well and even I can tie a decent bow (another surprise! hehe)
I added the image onto a piece of craft card and inked the edges and then added a diww cut with hearts around. In the top left I added 3 card candi and the sentiment happy birthday to the top right.
I hope you like my card and thanks for looking!
