Hoppy Birthday!

This week House Mouse and Friends is celebrating their 3rd birthday! Hooray!  To celebrate, they are having a birthday blog hop featuring all of the members on their design team old and new.  Their creations are truly spectacular!  And the DT member are giving away loads of delicious candy!! If you haven't seen it you should check it out. House mouse stamps were some of my first rubber stamps when I started crafting a few years ago and they are still some of my favorite stamps, so I am happy to join in the celebration. I decided to use "Party Hoppers" for my card--after all, what's a birthday celebration without party hats? (when I first showed the stamp to my husband he said it should be called "Party Poopers" because the bunny on the left looks annoyed about being forced to wear a hat. I think my husband is bit of a party pooper--now I can't look at the stamp the same way! Oh well, there's one at every party, isn't there?)

The papers and ribbon are all from my stash.  I went with really bright colors--I may have over done it a bit, but birthdays are a time of indulgence, right?  I used stickles and dollar store glitter glue on the hats and the sentiment.  The picture doesn't quite capture how sparkly they are.

This one doesn't either.  But it does give you a little peek at the inside.  (And perhaps the rabbit on the left looks a little more cheerful from this angle?)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
House Mouse and Friends--"Birthday Celebration"
Papertake Weekly--"Creature Comforts"
Truly Scrumptious--"Clean and Simple" (The colors are a bit bright, but the layout is simple and uncomplicated.)
