Happy Mousey!!

Morning Folks!
Gosh, Monday again... where did the weekend go??
Still good news, it's time for my second guest design team spot over at House Mouse and Friends where the new challenge is:


I had to think about this one a bit and narrow down my options. First up obviously a House Mouse Stamp but which one because I have so many favourites??
 I chose this one because it is one of the first Joanna Sheen stamp sets I bought and also because it has cake on it - who can resist cake?? Not me!!

Second choice was the colour, I like pink or lilac on cards even though I'm not a pink person IRL, so after much dithering, I went for both!! 
Finally embellishments which is where restraint left the building, I love HM because you can really dress them up or keep them quite simple. In this case I went for the more, more, more option - BIG ribbon bow, braid, and of course my all time fav Memory box die cuts. This one is the Macarena corner with a few pearls for good measure!!

So here's the big reveal, the finished card:
