Mouse Party (House Mouse GDT Card) ...

Today sees the start of another challenge over on House Mouse & Friends Monday 
Challenge blog titled 'Let's have a Party'. 
I am a Guest designer for this challenge once again but sadly
my last!   Thoroughly enjoyed being part of the team this month and
the House Mouse crew have made me very welcome including my fellow GDT Suzi,
thank you all for this opportunity.
As soon as I saw the title for this challenge I knew I was going to use this cute
little image, which until now had remained un-inked!
Lots of crafting goodies on this creation, so here goes -
House Mouse Stamp set is called 'Chill Out' 
I have stamped this little mouse onto white cardstock and then cut
slits either side of the glass.  Stamped again onto acetate and then cut out leaving flaps either
side of the glass to put into the slits,  so it leaves a slightly rounded glass.
Stamp another little cutie to decoupage him, to add to the final effect!

Close up of the acetate glass!

Stripey backing paper, hat paper, Kraft card
Party ticket, no gate crashing now.
Hat pom pom, hat hand cut
'With love' sentiment
Buttons, seam binding, gems
Doily to represent the cake at the party!
Last of all, completely hand stitched and some glossy accents inside the acetate
for the fizzy bubbles.

Card showing the 'with love' tag out!
We do hope you can join us for this challenge, really looking forward to seeing
your interpretations for this one!
Take care, happy crafting

OH My Gosh, what a remarkable card! The details are simply amazing, and I can't imagine the time you spent creating it! The acetate use is just FAB, but what caught my eye was those tiny "bites" in the pennants! A sure sign of a meese in da house :) CUTE!!
