D2D Artist's Challenge #2 for June

I'm back!
I have a wonderful birthday card to share with you today! I just got done putting on the final touches, and here she is....
This is a digital stamp image from Faith Skrdla's Designed2Delight digi shop entitled 'Mice Wishes'. Isn't that mouse just perfect? I love his nose and belly!
I received this digi free for participating in this month's Artist's Challenge! You should go check it out for yourself, you can get free digi's too!
I printed the image onto watercolor paper, heat set the ink, and colored him with SU markers and a blender pen. Then I used my versamark pen to add clear heat embossing all over him! After all, that's what Hallmark does, right? So why can't I?
I actually added a zig-zag stitch vertically next to the orange rickrack, but was completely unhappy with it, and covered it up with buttons! You can barely see it, and that's why I covered it in the first place! :)

Here is the interior! Plenty of room for birthday blessings!
Okay, gotta go stamp some more before hubby gets home from work! ;)

Have a wonderful afternoon!
