A berry Happy Birthday!

Hi folks! Hold on to your hats.... two posts in two days, I know... it's unheard of at SDDesigns lately. But I just had to share this little cutie as Joanna has now show cased it on Create and Craft to launch this months new House Mouse stamp designs.
This trio of mischievous mice are from the 'Berry' stamp plate. They have been coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and adhered with dimensional glue gel. It's a small 4.5 x 4.5 inch card which I covered with some purple backing paper and had lightly spritzed with purple Mica Mists. I then Die cut (using rectangle Nestabilities) the frame, decided where I was going to position it and masked the area (using post-it notes) to leave only the aperture area revealed. I then spritzed with more Mica Mists, this time more intensely and using silver and gold. I popped the frame back on using foam pads and positioned the mice using dimensional glue gel. I made a double ribbon bow and wrapped it around the card.
I covered the inside with more patterned paper and again used my Nestabilities and Mica sprays to create the layers. The cute little mouse and the sentiment are both from the stamp plate.
I hope you were able to catch some of Joanna's shows today. The sample makers did an amazing job. It was an extra special show today as Joanna was celebrating her 7 year anniversary with Create & Craft.... here's looking forward to many more!
Ciao for now!
