Happy Birthday Emma-Marie

No, I'm not telling you how old my eldest daughter is, but it's her birthday today! (It doesn't seem that long ago she was doing this!! )
I made this little House Mouse card for her (thank you Sue for the stamped image) and thought I might enter it in their challenge this week, over on The House Mouse and friends, challenge blog. This week you have to have some embossing on your card.
Wild Orchid are having a challenge where you must use a sentiment and Stamp Something's challenge is cute. Well, this lickle micey is definitely cute!! I've used my new deckle edged nesties, so there's a bit of embossing there and I've used a cuttlebug folder so there's a bit more over there.
In my hurry to get it finished and posted off in time I not only made the card the wrong way round... but actually the wrong way up! Upside down and opening from the top downwards! Luckily I managed to pull it apart before the silicone glue set. That's why those little heart buttons are in the middle and not on the end, where they're supposed to be! (shhh! No one will notice!)
The papers I've used are from a Papermania A5 pack 'Blueberry Hill' I've coloured with Promakers. was a bit disappointed with my new Pastel Blue Promarker, as it was a lot darker than my old one and shows up far more than I would like, usually it almost disappears into the background. I think it looks almost grey here. Never mind.
The font is a freebie (of course) I have used it before, but if you missed it, it's called 'A Red Bucket' there's a link on my sidebar but I know how lazy you all are so you can download it HERE! Thank you for stopping by! Nearly forgot. Happy Burns Night... I think we're having roasted haggis!! (ps, if you really want to know how old Emma is, you'll have to look on last January's post!!)
