Birthday mice...

This is the card I've made for my mum to give to my grandma for her birthday in a couple of days.  Sorry, there are loads of photos!





I love this style of card as they really do look special - my mum's thrilled with it :o)  But they're nearly impossible to get a decent photo of - maybe the light box I'm getting for Christmas will help!

I've used LOTV die cut images - in theory this was supposed to speed things up, but by the time I'd faffed around with everything else on my card it took just as long as usual.  The papers are unknown ones from my stash with dark brown cardstock from Papermill Direct.  I can't remember the make of most of the things I've used and I haven't had chance to look for any challenges again... headless chicken at the moment sorry!

Off for a commenting mad dash while I'm sat still for a bit!
