Mouse Game Night

Hello! :)

This yet another easel card. I really enjoy them lately! I used a sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp, and had some fun picking out papers to use (I wanted to do it in shades of red). :) This card is for a friend of mine, and whenever I visit her we end up having a game night with cards and board games or a jigsaw puzzle, so I thought the little mice playing cards would be perfect. :)

This is how it looks when it's completely folded:

The bow is actually two bows, both from crinkle ribbon. I just inserted the green one inside the red one, after both have been made separately.

I free-handed the "Happy Birthday" with a white Sakura pen, since I don't have many sentiment stamps and could not find one that I wanted to use. I am really happy with how it came out. :)

As always, the stamp was colored with Prismacolor pencils. And the dentist mirror has some Diamond Glaze on it so that it looks more like glass:

And here it is in its easel form:

The strip of flowers on the bottom was done with Glitter Ritz micro glitter. I masked it with a flowery ribbon to get the design. :)

The inside is very simple:

That's all. :) Thanks for stopping by! :)
