Birthday Mice

Good morning everyone! 

I wanted to pop in today and share a Birthday card that I made... 
My card features an image from the Penny Black "Critter Party" stamp set... I've had this stamp set for ages and never got around to inking up this adorable image... now, I'm happy I did because it was so fun to work with! :)

It's stamped with Memento Black ink and colored with Copics, the ticket/die cut is from Whimsy Stamps and the papers are from Simple Stories. I used a MFT die for the button, a Penny Black die for the Heart Stings and EK Success punch for the photo corners. Vintage Photo ink was used for the distressing and the hand dyed seam binding and doily are from my stash.

Well, that's it for today- thanks so much for stopping by... I'll see you Friday!
