Two Challenges and a Birthday Card

I chose this image as my "favorite" House-Mouse image, probably because it's happy and peaceful and fun to color. It was hard to pick a favorite amongst all those cutie images, but this one is the one I chose for the "Favorite" challenge. I made it for a birthday card for a very dear friend, and she loves blues and yellows so I hope she likes this. I followed the sketch for Friday Sketchers challenge which I am just getting in before the cut-off, I hope. The inside of the card says "..on your Birthday". I used my new blue from SU called Marina Mist and I LOVE the color. My clouds are from MFT's Rain or Shine and I colored it with my Copics (my happy time.) Better close and get this posted. Thanks for stopping by.
