Let's Party with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next great challenge at the

who are offering 
$25 Gift Certificate

Here is my design team inspirational piece, but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge blog to see the rest of the team's awesome creations.
I made an 8 x 8 inch Male Birthday card, now as you know cards for men are not really my thing, so still ended up putting a blue feather and ribbon/bow and pearls on this creation.  The image is House Mouse "Surprise Party".  The grand nestie circles and circle scallops came out again along with a Marianne ribbon border.  The little and large dark blue pearls are from the Hobby House. The ribbon and little bow and the papers are Papermania Capsule Mono collection from Grimsby Crafts.

The image has been coloured in the BG range using four different shades and the image plate has been edged with TH shattered glass.

This is the little sweet mouse sitting in the corner.

Now as always I would like to thank all my wonderful visitors for their lovely inspirationally kind comments, which allows me to hop on back over to visit them in return.

 I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges, thank you to Feline for the assistance in this
