MFT Strike up the Band kraft birthday card



 


Hello everyone and welcome to the ATSM birthday challenge. It's our 9th birthday so cause for lots of celebration and thanks to Kylie for organising everything so well.


I'm still at sixes and sevens with the reroofing going on long beyond the schedule and am not sure if I'm coming or going!

Anyway to my celebration birthday card


I used the MFT Strike up the Band stamps and dies, which are perfect for a summer birthday, and had the little mice play up a storm as they march across the card. They were coloured with Copics and I added some white gel pen.

The background card is one of my favourite design from Bright Rosa and I cut into it with an insert die before backing it with kraft polka dot paper for Papertrey Ink.



If you pop over to the blog you will see lots of inspiration and we are very pleased to welcome Nandini back to the team too!

I'd like to play along with





Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs

That's just the cutest parade I've ever seen! I think your card design is so clever. I love the shape and the inset die. The neutral color makes the mice really stand out!
