New House Mouse Card

It took longer to get a good photo of this card than it did to make it.  I have a low-end digital camera and I think it was tricked by the small dots and wanted to blur the background.  Finally, I had to resort to taking the card outside, fighting the breeze that kept the day from being stifling, and finally got a good photo.

I have been so busy with Magnolia cards that my House Mouse images have been gathering dust.  However, a friend on the House Mouse group had a birthday, which I missed, so I will be sending this card off to her.   Thanks for looking!

I had a hard time lining up the cupcake paper on the inside, and after wasting a sheet of this great paper, it dawned on me to cut the inside paper as one sheet, and then cut it at the fold in the card!  (It was very late and I was watching a movie - The Mission - while cutting the paper, not the best way to guarantee accuracy!)
