Birthday Buddies

     This happy image was a gift from my Johnny Luv.  It was colored on our trip to Texas a few weeks ago.  There are 11 layers at the thickest part. (My daughter counted)  The mice, the pompom, the hat and some of the confetti has all been popped up, as well as the frame surrounding the image.  I really need to take out a few shares of 3M, I use so much foam tape.

     The card is embellished wiht Sakura glitter pen.  on the background, around the layers, and on the birthday hat and confetti. Yellow ink was stippled behind the mage and the white layer  has distress ink around the edges.   A triple bow was added using a peg bow maker.

This card has been entered into the House Mouse Monday Challenge.  The theme for the challenge is to add a jewel.
