House Mouse Birthday Cupcake

At last, here I am. I have weeks like this last one, when I'm not at home for most of the week. Other commitments.

I've made this card for a Valentine Swap. I started off just wanting to paper piece the outside of the patty case paper. So I did that using the blue heart paper from the set of papers called Lovestruck by Kaisercraft, then colouring the image matching colours to papers. The sketch I used is one I found while blog surfing last weekend, on Ana Wohlfahrt's cupcake anniversary challenge for Taylored Expressions. As usual, I've missed the cut off date but anyway I liked the sketch. I did change the size of one of the layers. I stoked with the way it turned out and also that I could use the brads that match the designer papers.
Stamps - House Mouse Birthday Cupcake, SU So Many Sayings
Cardstock - Kaisercraft Lovestruck, Firehearts, Artesian Pool, Blue by Bazzill
Inks - Stazon timber brown, SU chocolate chip marker
Accessories - Kaisercraft lovestruck brads and white 5cm flowers, prismacolour pencils, SU 1¼ & 1⅜ round punches.

It's raining cats and dogs here. Windy as well. There's a severe weather warning out telling us that there is a monsoon trough and low out there in the ocean that's bringing all this rain. So we'll have webbed feet soon. Lots of roads cut further north and flooding in the north west of Queensland.
Once again, thanks for checking out my blog.
