Marshmallow Overload

This card is a very belated birthday one for a friend of mine. It is also for the House-Mouse 100th challenge celebration and therefore has a mouse on it! :D

Here's the front:

This cute little thing overate marshmallows! :D

I sprayed the background paper with lots and lots of Tattered Angels glimmer mist (pashmina color). And the piece of green paper with flowers is from Hanko. Lots of ribbon and Stickles here. So pretty much everything on the front shines when exposed to the sun. :) Stickles on marshmallows, too!

Actually, this is a bit of a cheating card.. The front has a big hole in it... (hehe!) And the mouse is on the inside of the card. Like so:

And there's more ribbon and shimmery paper and some gem thingies! :) The mouse itself was colored with Prismacolor pencils and then I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp over it again, because the grey pencil made the little black hair almost disappear. Took me four tries to get the images match perfectly... But I'm very happy with the way it looks, it was worth it! :)

On the left side, I wrote the message to my friend with a white Sakura gel pen, then used the 3-in-1 Beacon glue to stick the vellum on there. But the glue showed through.. :( So I had to outline it with Stickles, even though that made the vellum uneven.. I didn't that like too much, but it doesn't look bad after all, I don't think. :)

Here's a close-up of all the shimmer:
