Birthday Donut for a Mouse

      Oh, Eeek, it's a birthday mouse eating a donut!  OK, not a real one but rather a darling little House Mouse decorating a birthday card for a grandson -- not one of my own but of the lady who asked me for the card.   And, since I'm told that grandson loves donuts, hopefully he'll love this card even if it means sharing his birthday donut with a mouse.

     This image is colored with ProMarkers, then cut with a scalloped, stitched die from Memory Box.  I used a larger die from that same set to cut the orange frame.  Both pieces of ribbon are left over scraps and the colors seemed perfect for this yellow and orange card.  The design is CAS because it's for a boy but also because it has to be mailed.
