House Mouse & Friends Challenge #115

Here's the photo for inspiration for the House Mouse & Friends Challenge #115 this week....

and here's my take on the challenge. I made a birthday card using blues, browns, and tans. I embossed the cupcake with 2 different embossing folders, and added some frosted stickles to add a little sparkle to the frosting and cherry! The cherry was made using the SU owl punch and a tiny strip of green dsp.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Oh my gosh, this is adorable, Carol! I love the sweet image and you've colored it to perfection..great shadowing, too.

I really like how you used those folders for the cupcake. And, your zig zag punch work is just perfect for this awesome card.
