Blue for a boy

   What male does not like cake? Here is a naughty mouse (it can only be a boy!) jumping on a cake while another one looks on. The House Mouse stamp, called 'cupcake jump', was coloured using Promarkers and matted onto patterned paper from Papermania. Papers from the same pack were used for the background matting and layering  and for the horizontal strip and sentiment. Having attached the main image to the card I stamped, coloured and cut out a mouse from another set of stamps and placed him so that he was peering over the edge of the card. I finished the card by attaching several card candies to it.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   I Love Promarkers - anything goes
   House Mouse and Friends - anything masculine
   Allsorts - all about the boy

   Fantastic Tuesday - anything goes
