HMFMC113 - Best Birthday Wishes

The House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is "Make Wishes Come True".  I had the perfect stamp to play along with this challenge and it was the first time I was inking it up!  I bought it on clearance with the sole purpose of making a card for my mother-in-law.

Aside from Christmas cards....what is the earliest you've made a card for someone?  My mother-in-law's birthday isn't until I'm VERY early, but I guess I'll just be very prepared (as long as I don't misplace it!)

Now, my mother-in-law LOVES anything HOT!!  The hotter the better!!!!  So, these jalapeno theme will be right up her alley!  I love that he's going to light the candles with his hot breath!!

I tried to do a couple of fun things with the card layout, but the image is so large - it takes up most of the card front - so, I ended up keeping it simple.  The image is colored with my prisma pencils and the sentiment is from MFT.

The challenge runs for two weeks, so you still have time to play along!!!  Hope you're having a great day!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Awww, this is one hot, little card, Maria! That image is adorable and you really brought it to life with your beautiful shading. Way to go on getting ahead of schedule on the card-making, too. That WAS one of my big goals this year but I am already behind schedule. Hope your weekend was fun! Hugs! :)

So stinkin' cute! I love House Mouse images. I always have the same problem. The image is so big, I don't know quite what to do with it. Your card looks fabulous. I love the touch of yellow.
