Happy Birthday House mouse

You know how much I LOVE the brilliant and super cute house mouse stamps and decoupage and everything else they do so when I saw that House mouse and friends challenge is having a massive birthday hop I just had to take part :D
For my card I have used the adorable stamp from the unmounted range at Joanna Sheen called Ice cream. I have coloured them with my promarkers. For the background I have made my own using a swirly stamp I got from the show at Sandown yesterday. I have stamped it in Distress ink (walnut) and then used my Dreamweaver stencil brushes to add lipstick distress ink from the edges towards the center. The sentiment is from Crafty Emma's Store.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:
House mouse and friends challenge - Happy Birthday (Blog hop)
Alphabet challenge - Q for quick and simple
Daring card maker - A birthday card with a candle on it (They are sponsored by the great Funky Hand)
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Use an animal image and pink
