Sending Birthday Hugs & Wishes

On October 1 a dear friend turns 65. We first became friends in 1974. While we have not lived near each other in 41 years we can begin a conversation as if we saw each other daily. She has a collection of mice so when my new Christmas Critters set arrived I was ready to decorate her birthday card.

Card Menu: Papertrey Ink stamps, dies and olive twist card stock and a miscellaneous bit of patterned paper; Inks: Hero Arts Soft Purple and Grape Juice shadow, Brilliance Pearl Beige; a gold wink of stella heart.

After re-reading the CASology rules my card front may be a bit busy for a clean and simple look. I kept the layers to a minimum with the frame containing the big element of the "cute" mouse!
