mouse birthday

well today i am showing a birthday card i made for my best friends husband steve ~HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE ~nearly catching me up!!
used the fantastic sketch over on sketch saturday, also used three other challenges on this card =over on basic grey the challenge is to use "chipboard", and over on one stop craft ~the theme is "take a punch" (use a punch), also over on cute card thursday they are asking you to use humour on your card "have a giggle".
i have used basic grey archaic rock and primitive papers, brenda pinnick chipboard letters/circles, used my stampin` up scalloped edge punch,and used my new crop~a~dile big bite for holes and eyelets, used this cute housemouse stamp ~mudpie wonders and inkadinkadoo~ child hood saying , used the puched out hole middles as embellishments!! ~no glitter as a mans card!!
still sorting out toys/and crafting bits ~starting to see the wood for the trees!! byeeeeeeeeee for now xx
