Cheese Wrapping, A Cute Mouse and Lots of Happiness - Greeting Card

Hello and happy Wednesday! 

It's time for the Stamping Sensations Midmonth reminder post, do stop by the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team created for your inspiration for our August theme of "Any Celebration". There is plenty of time still to join us if you haven't already and don't forget you may always enter up to 3 times with a new creation fitting our theme. We have a wonderful selection of goodies from Craft Stash to give away to one lucky winner!

This time I found my inspiration by looking through my box of previously die cut pieces and found the yellow circle as well as scalloped rectangle which inspired this sketch.

The little mouse with the cheese wrapping paper is from the Penny Black set Birthday Critters, stamped with Versafine Onyx ink and colored using my Zig Clean Color markers on Bristol Vellum paper. 

Related Products:

Patterned paper is from an old pack by DCWV (I think...). And another strip of striped paper from my box of patterned scraps. Both sentiments used are by Penny Black as well, Snippets (the small Happy Birthday greeting) and Sprinkles and Smiles (the other sentiment). 

I still had my bottle of Hero Arts watercolor glitter/shimmer out from the last card I made, so I brushed some over the die cut circle as well as the present, but I had a hard time photographing the sparkles this time. 

You can see some of it in the yellow circle but it looks like it's  non-existent on the present.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
