Happy Birthday - Color Dare #296

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #296.  Stamped the house-mouse on Toffee paper usng black ink for the house mouse, pomegranate for the strawberry, and then water-brushed with CTMH inks...the mouse with Toffee, Strawberry with Pomegranate and juniper along the grass lines and strawberry leaves.  Wasn't happy with it so re-stamped with VersaMark (good thing it was still lined up in my Misti) and heat embossed in white.  Still not happy so took to the water-brush again and added more color.  

House mouse stamped image was cut using a rectangle stitched die and another stitched rectangle in the next size up for a frame.  The background was dry embossed with a wood slat embossing folder and layered with two more frames.  Sentiment added to the paint stroke die cut.  

Also sent to the following challenges

It's tough to add colour to Kraft paper - you did a good job here, even if it took multiple attempts. The mouse and the berry look terrific (and they are adorable!) Great birthday card.
