Cake and Candles

Hello Folks!
I finished this card last night but had to wait until this afternoon to get a halfway decent photo - roll on Spring!!  My House Mouse addiction continues to grow and looks like lasting well into 2012. I was lucky enough to get this stamp set for Christmas which I think is just adorable and a pleasure to colour. The nesties are also new!!

How cute is this mouse with a full tummy??!!
There is a bit of glitter gel pen on the frosting but I just can't get my camera to pick it up - sigh!

Thanks for looking!
