Happy Birthday to you

Hi guys, gosh two cards in one day a record for me lately, I've been so busy this week I've not had much chance to craft but I got this adorable stamp in my DT package from Nikki at Bunny Zoe's and it's so adorable and cute I just wanted to create lol,
This gorgeous stamp is by Wild Rose Studio and is called Mouse on presents, I coloured it with my copics and just love how you could use it for so many ages too,
again I used the gorgeous papers from the Carta Bella - Devoted  paper pad as it's so useful for more than love and romance cards and Nikki has it on offer at the moment too,
Closer view, hopefully you can make out the hint of stickles I put on the heart that the mouse is holding,
I distressed my paper edges and machine sewed the background paper too,

Wild Rose Studio - Mouse on presents
Doo Hickey - Vintage box lacing coffee die
