Let's have a party!

"Let's Have A Party" is the theme for the new House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog challenge.   Get out your House Mouse stamps and create a card with a party theme.  Be sure to check out the wonderful design team's samples and also learn how to win some wonderful prizes HERE.

For my card I used the House Mouse stamp titled, Pop P-ular Fun.  The mousie on the pile of balloons is surely going to be in for a surprise! 

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampabilities "Pop-ular Fun"
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black and the image is colored with Copic markers
Designer Paper and Cardstock:  Stampin' Up!
Accessories: Offray dotted ribbon, machine stitching, balloon, Stampin' Up! scalloped corner and border punches, and clear Crystal Effects glaze.

I hope you can play along with this challenge and be sure to upload your card for a chance to win a super prize.  Also, the super cool folks at the office House Mouse Designs official site would love it too if you'd upload your card on the HMD gallery which you can find HERE.
Until next time,
