Super-late New Year's

I made this card late last night, but it's a New Year's/Christmas one. :) I was so excited to color this stamp! And put all the glitter on it... :D Here it is:

Food Love

In today's card I used a stamp that I got about half a year ago... I was waiting to use it for a specific friend's birthday, and I really wanted this image to be a surprise for her. So, I waited, even though it was really hard, because this stamp is just too cute! :)

Today is also the first day of a new House Mouse and Friends challenge... I am entering this card there, because this stamp is definitely a favorite for me. :) I love the fully-satisfied-with-life look on the mouse's face... And the bitten marshmallows.. :)

On to the card, then!

...I did not pick a good time of day to photograph this, the lighting is a bit dark...

I wanted to make the card really colorful and ended up layering papers. I Cuttlebug-embossed them and used mounting tape for dimension. Plus, some stickles and ribbon.. I doubt I can do without those. :)

For the inside, I simply stamped some little decorative images on white cardstock, colored them with Prismacolor pencils, cut out, and taped to the card. I used the Glitter Ritz cool highlights all over the butterfly and the balloons, and they really do shine! It turned out hard to photograph it though. :/ But here are my attempts to capture the details... :)

Oh, and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment was stamped in white and heat-embossed with some clear powder. :) I added random colors of Stickles to the dots, too..
