Pucker Up Card

This month over at GSD's monthly challenge, Gerda gave us this darling mouse to play with. I love his lopsided grin!
For my card, I die cut some Richard Garay cardstock with a Gina Marie Designs X-stitched rectangle die and also die cut a Gina Marie stitched square die in the center of the top portion. After sizing up my digi using my Silhouette Design Studio software and printing it out, I die cut it with the same stitched square die so it fit in the aperture. I popped it up with foam squares to adhere it. 
I die cut a PoppyStamps die for the CTMH sentiment. I colored everything with Copic and MEXPY markers.
For the mouse's drink, I fussy cut another straw to give some dimension and used vellum for the ice cubes (also fussy cut). Then I used clear cardstock for the whole cup to give it the look of a glass of lemonade. 
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
