House-Mouse Designs - Birthday Cake

Although I have a couple of House-Mouse stamp sets I cannot recall having used them.  Their designs are very distinctive and I am not sure whether or not I like them.

For this stamp I decided to use Copics to colour it in only because I was wanting to fade the pink on the waterlily leaves - the outer row under the water.  I used Distress Ink for the water.  The image is framed with a Nestabilities Labels Four die and then matted onto a Labels Seventeen die in pink cardstock.  Under that is a Martha Stewart border punch in cream.  The background paper is from my stash and was a little too bright so I toned it down with a layer of vellum.  The corners are from an EK Success punch, the flowers are from my stash with the leaves being from a Martha Stewart punch.  The sentiment is from a Clear Dollar set called Something to Crow About and it was punched out using a SU punch called Word Window.
