A Birthday Parade!

I needed a Birthday card for a special someone, and decided to use my new Birthday Parade stamps

These sets of images are so fun!  I love making the little scenes. 

Of course I had to figure out how to use almost every image in the set.  I positioned all the parade mice on a big block and stamped them all at once to make the parade.  I colored them with Copics and cut out around them.  The “Birthday Greetings” sentiment (also in the set!) is straight – but since it is unmounted (I cling mounted my set using EZ mount) – I just bent it to fit the flag when I stuck it to the block.  Then stamped – Cool beans!

I created a background with the village stamp in the set.  I colored the houses and sky, and then masked the bottom edge of the houses.  I created the grass with Old Olive distress ink and a duster brush.

The I just attached the parade with foam tape to pop it up.  (I shortened the flag a little so the houses would show more).

Since there was so much going on in the picture, I decided to leave the rest of the card pretty plain.  This card is 4″ by 9″ (to fit some envelopes I have in my stash.  I hope the recipient likes it!

Hope everyone has a great weekend planned.  Don’t forget to stop by on Saturday for our Festive Fall Garden Walk – it should be fun.

    Cathy – your mouse parade is sensational. I adore sweet mice like these. Your card is fabulous. I cannot imagine how much work went into it – a true labor of love and it shows exquisitely. I can’t believe you are going to part with it. Wow! What a gift.
