I always think I don't do a lot of sparkle, but then I look back on my work and think ... well, actually I do. This is a little more sparkly than usual, but he is such a cute mouse and he deserves it!
I stamped the dark blue card and heat embossed it silver, then dry embossed a frame around it. The mouse is coloured with Reno pens, then sprinkled with fine glitter; the balloon is coloured and sprinkled with bold glitter. The diecut circle edge is dipped in versamark ink and embossed, with just some fine sprinkles of embossing powder to add a party feeling. When dry I layered them over the diecut image for 3D effect. Self adhesive glittery ribbon strips just to complete the picture and anchor it.
