HMFMC113 Makes Wishes Come True

Well I finally got a chance to get this card made and posted for the House Mouse & Friends Challenge.
I decided to go with Birthday Wishes so I picked the "Signing A Card"  image and colored it with  Copics.   I stamped the sentiment so that it would look like he was dotting the "i" with his pencil, but I moved it a hair when stamping so it did not come out exactly the way I was hoping it would.  I made the background using the Piestra Tile die from Memory Box and matted that onto a piece of SU's lavender lace cs.  I also used SU's Elegant Eggplant and Pink Parchment card stock.  I used a SU border punch and added some small pearls with a Viva Pearl Pen. The flowers are by Prima and I added some Glossy Accents to the white brads to brighten them up a little bit.  The leaves were made with a MS punch after I crimped the paper.  A few more pink and white pearls and it was complete.
I could not get a good picture of this card today no matter what I tried.  It really does look a lot  brighter and more cheery in real life.  Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to stop by for a visit.  I'll see you again soon.
