Seize the Birthday Sketch Challenge #1 {A Feminine Birthday Mouse from Mabelle}

Another year is here! I am excited to see where this next year of crafting takes me and what a great way to start the year but with a brand new challenge blog! Today marks the inaugural challenge for my brand new challenge called Seize the Birthday. The amazing design team has outdone themselves with my simple sketch! Thank you ladies! We are all excited to have created our cards this week with the cute images from Mabelle at Whimsy and Stars Studio!!! The lovely Mabelle is offering up a prize this week for our winner...please visit our Seize the Birthday blog for more information and to link up your own birthday card!!! 

Because this is the first sketch of the month, 
we are all creating FEMININE Birthday cards with the sketch!!! 

My card is fairly simple this week, I used some of the Simple Stories SNAP Pattern Paper and went from there! The image is one of Mabelle's newest images, and I couldn't resist inking her up with my Copic Markers.

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: Whimsy and Stars, Stampin' Up
Inks: Copics, Memento Black
Papers: Snap by Simple Stories, Island Indigo
Extras: Spellbinders Dies

We hope you will join us this week at Seize the Birthday
