New card for a birthday

Well, after days of trying to match up coordinates to the designer paper, I finally found what I needed and got this card finished - in time to be a belated birthday card!   I love how it came together.  The particulars are below:
Stamp:  House Mouse, Birthday Cupcake HMJR1007
Cardstock:  Bazzill Mauve Ice
Designer paper:  Heidi Grace Shimmer Foil (Valentine line) Cupcakes
1st mat:  Sprout 6 x 6 collection by Memory Box, Inc.  (closest to the mice)
2nd mat: Purple Brocade, TPC Studio (ANW Crestwood) -  used wrong side.
3rd mat:  DCWV Once Upon a Time 4.5 x 6 mat stack.
Ribbon:  American Crafts
Pearls:  Recollections faux pearl stickers
Stickles Cotton Candy on the cupcake
The mice were colored with Prismacolor and Derwent pencils, blended with gamsol.  The background was done with Pebbles chalks from the Shimmer collection. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo's Chelsea Sentiments. 
Thanks for looking!

Card count:  2/365
