Silly Birds!!!

Here is my card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge 'On The Beach'. The stamp is a Stampa Rosa House Mouse called Silly Birds. Yep, makes me laugh. The sketch I used is SCS261. I'm sorry I don't know where the paper came from, had it for years. The hessian is out of my stash, another thing that I've for a very long time.

I silver embossed the bottom edge of the red c/s with a shell edging stamp to take away the plainess and give a bit of interest. I used sprinkles in the right hand corner and added a starfish charm. Kindyglitz was added to add sparkle and represent wet sand and shells.

Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment on my cards.
