House Mouse Party Time Challenge

 Here's a clean and simple birthday card I made for the current House Mouse Challenge where the optional theme is Party Time. 

I stamped the sentiments and the image onto an A2 kraft card base and then colored the stamped image with colored pencils. I like the look of colored pencils on kraft paper. I don't do too many CAS style cards, but I like the way this one turned out and plan to use it for a masculine birthday as I often have trouble with those. Most of my birthday cards tend to be more floral and feminine. 

Challenges I'm entering:

House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge ( ATG with a House Mouse image with the optional theme of Party Time (ends 1/6/23) Party Time (1/5; ends 1/3/23)

The Paper Funday Challenges: Birthday or anniversary (ends at the end of the month)

  3. What a fun card and image. Colored up beautifully too. Thanks for sharing it with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.


  4. I love this on kraft card stock. I need to try it. All these years and I haven't. I'm terrible at male cards. Your card is so cute and nicely colored. Thanks for joining us at HMFMC. {Bunny} Designer for House Mouse and Friends
