It's Your Birthday...

Happy to be making another card for House Mouse and Friends challenge HMFMC#245 - Let's Get Some Berries.   First off the berries were a problem.. no HM stamps with any sort of berry... but on checking my few stamps thought I could mask out the 'chocolate mousse' on the ice cream container and just hand write in 'strawberry'...  so that's what I've done, then coloured the image with Distress Inks to match some old patterned paper I found in my stash.  Then I discovered a mini strawberry stamp, so I stamped and fussy cut a few to add to my card.  To finish I mounted the image panel on a layer of red and stamped some sentiments and used the stitched die cut  tag to give them so shape. I am also playing along with Freshly Made Sketches #FMS297 using the layout. Thanks for taking a peek
