Happy Birthday to my friend, Aga!

For this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches, our sponsor is Sweet n Sassy stamps
I have decided to make this card for my special friend, Aga!  She will get this card before it goes live, well because her birthday is before this goes live. :0)

Ever had a day like this?  I made my card thinking i had the right sketch and the right sponsor together..but no, i didn't.  I had made a complete card with the wrong sponsor..so what did i do???  Well, I totally didn't throw away my first "opps", i carefully removed the image and started over again with the right sketch.  Good thing because i liked this card better for a birthday card!

And the end of the story..i have a card base for another sketch coming up next month!  Yay!

 Here is my card, please come and join us at Tuesday Morning Sketches for this challenge:

Side view:

Are you wondering what i did with this card..at least with the image..the images remind me of the duck that Usborne books use..and they are hiding behind and in things all throughout their books.  I thought i'd use that idea, and cut out the image from the one image i own of Cocoa Mouse and this one came from Cocoa Mouse Latte.

The dies i used:
Lacy squares- Lifestyle crafts
corner die- Cheery Lynn

Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch this week (we have been re-visiting some of our old sketches from last year) this one was picked by team mate, Jenee:

  4. Oh Bonnie, you do make the cutest darn cards ... This little mouse is so sweet (how can a mouse be cute when I'm scared to death of them)but it is.
