House Mouse Challenge No. 7 ~ Use a Tag on your card

Gouda Birthday

Cheese & Crackers?

Happy Mousie Moday from the Dairy State!  🙂   [Note:  I pre-schedule my HM cards to coordinate with the main site which is done in Wales time.  I’m really not posting these at 4:00 in the morning!  I’m not that crazy! 😀 ]

Our challenge this week was to use a tag on a card.   This image is another older Stampa Rosa from my sister as well as the matching sentiment.   It’s colored with Copics; the wax cheese seal (not sure if that’s what it’s called) and the birthday candle are heat embossed with clear EP to give them a more waxy look.  The candle flame is colored with glitter pens:
