Mousey birthday

Recently, I was looking for a stamp that I swore I had. Going through all of my stamps resulted in finding out that I actually thought I bought the stamp, but didn't. Darn it. Thankfully, when husband, son and I went to the US for a weekend away, I was in Hobby Lobby and found it in the clearance bin. SCORE! I snapped it up without a second thought.

Our son is turning one this week. I thought this stamp would be the perfect one to mark his first birthday.

I am entering this card in the House Mouse & Friends challenge HMFMC117, Something Sweet.

 The image was stamped in momento black on bristol paper and coloured with copics. I added a little distress stickles on the top of the cupcake to make it sparkle a little. The image and mat were cut out with a nestabilities die and layered on a piece of patterned paper and placed on top of a blue card.

Happy first birthday, Mr. Munch. Mommy and Daddy love you!
