Celebrate !!!

I made this card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge which is celebrating it's blogoversary :-) They have asked us to choose any theme from the last year. Well as I didn't find the time to join in last week and had already planned what I was going to do I thought I would do it now :-) So this is a song title ,, Celebrate by Kool and the Gang I thought it quite fitting !! :-) I also followed the sketch from Challenge 48 ;-)
I am also entering this into the Stamp Something Challenge
they are asking us to use our favourite papers or colours,,, I chose both :-)

The images is my new HM Party Ribbons and the HM Celebrate stamps which I recently bought from Simon Says Stamp,, cute eh !! :-) I coloured them with copics and 3D'd the mouse ,, added ice stickles and some red and pink gift wrap ribbons.

The papers are my favourite new Fancy Flourish set from Funky Fairys Papercrafts I also used It's so Distressing Vol 1 papers too. I know I am on the DT and you may think I am biased ,,, but truly these papers are fabulous and so convenient !! one of my fave colour combos is red/black so I chose to use them too :-)

On the sketch it said ribbon to go across the card ,, but I stamped footprints instead :-) The black fancy ribbon is from Bunny Zoe Crafts :-)

I have made this for my daughter's friend's 16th birthday,, Emma came with us to England recently and told her mum it was the best holiday she had ever had ,,, she's been to Disneyland Florida,, a Caribbean cruise etc !! BUT she preferred YORKSHIRE !!! :-) Brilliant !! lol :-)

I would love to read your comments so don't forget to leave me one before you go :-) Also I have a blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to enter ,, there are conditions tho !! :-)
