Mickey Mouse Birthday Card

My niece is turning two next week - the same one who I made invitations and thank you notes for earlier this month.  She LOVES Mickey Mouse; her parents can't figure out why she knows him.  I told them that every little kid knows "the mouse".  Her party isn't for a couple of weeks yet, but I made this for her actual birthday, and I'll make her another for the party.

This card is for the Day 25 DIY Challenge over at 365 Cards.  The challenge was to create a do-it-yourself, glittered brad and/or pearl.  I didn't have a brad I liked, so I covered a green one in black diamond stickles by Ranger.

The papers for this project come from DCWV except the black and white.  The DCWV stacks I used were Neutrals and Fun in the Sun Summer.  All the cuts on this card came from the Mickey Font Cricut cartridge.  Mickey was cut at 3-1/2".  The "Oh Boy!" charm was cut at 1-3/4".  The inside sentiment was cut at 1".

The colors didn't turn out as "true" as I had hoped in the photo.  They are really much brighter in person.  The photo at the left is a close-up of the charm and brad I stickled.
Have a great day!  I'm off to my craft room for some Easter creations.
