Breaking Out an Oldie But Goody Stamp

Hi Everyone!
Today I am playing along with a couple of challenges over @ Split Coast Stampers plus a few others.
Today's "Free For All" F4A43 challenge is "Christmas Break". We were asked to take a break from Christmas cards and create a birthday card....GLADLY!  ;)
Yesterday's "Ways to Use It" WT301 is "All That Glitters" and we were simply asked to use glitter on our project.


I broke out with one of my favorite Penney Black birthday stamps from the "Critter Party" set. I know it has been around for awhile but I think it is sweet and timeless. I used watercolors on the image and popped 2 of the mice and the cupcake for some dimension.
The designer papers are Basic Grey's - "Sugar Rush".
That cute little flower that adds just the right pop to my bow is a small flat mulberry flower from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew ~ "Anything Goes"
Fun With Shapes and More ~ "Scalloped"

 Thanks so much for dropping by!
Hugs,
True :D
