Meljens Birthday Cake Mouse Card

I had a lot of fun creating this Happy Birthday card this week with my new Birthday Cake Mouse Digi from Meljens.. Hope you like how I decorated the inside of the card with balloons everywhere! The balloons flip back and forth as you wiggle the card, it’s so much fun to play with. I used a border punch to create paper lace and then embossed it so it looks even more like lace, but with a fresh and funky feel. I can’t honestly believe I actually had fluro pink cardstock and fluro green cardstock, and after digging through all my green ribbons… yes I actually had fluro green ribbon…what the …where did all that come from!!!!I used a combination of fluro gel pens for the 3 candles and icing and Copics to colour the cake and hungry mouse! I used my new flower soft and after much debate with my daughter to use white or cream we decided on cream flower soft because it looks like real cream oozing out the sides of this delicious chocolate cake.
