House Mouse Birthday Card

Eight cards on the table in various stages of completion 
and none of them would work for a birthday card. 
This afternoon I have a hairdresser appointment so I can continue to look like a young Great Grandmother.  Sunday is her birthday so I really should take her a birthday card.  And I should get a card in the mail for another stamping friend who also has a birthday Sunday and who adores House Mouse.  I checked the theme for the current challenge at House Mouse (Lots of Layers), and got busy making this card x 2.
The image was stamped with StazOn and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I used markers to color it.  Papers are from bits and pieces of 2 different paper pads.  Beneath the image is a big hole because both the pink strip and banner papers weren't long enough to go all the way across.  The corner pieces were cut with a Spellbinders Die and the pearls are Spellbinders Nestabling.
