HM Birthday Sketch

This week's HM challenge was a sketch challenge, sponsored by the talented girls at KL Stampin 'n Scrappin'. Their own DT posted cards to the challenge along with the regular HM DT. The cards are fabulous! I mean, they're always fabulous, but this week, with all the layers to the sketch, they're really fabulous! KLSNS is also offering a prize so be sure to check it out. The sketch involved many layers so this took a lot of thought. In fact I put together all of my layers before coloring my image to make sure it all went together. My DP's are all from Basic Grey's "Cupcake", but I backed my image with SU's Yo Yo Yellow to be sure it stood out. I wanted the papers to make it look festive because these little mousies look like they're about to really celebrate. Thanks for stopping by and I'll try to get up one more post before embarking on our big adventure to the UK. Wish I could meet up with my blogging friends over there, but unless you're willing to meet me in Edinborough, I don't think that will happen on this trip. Happy Wednesday.
