Paper Sundaes SSS challenge

Happy Sunday everyone! I am probably already at work while you are reading this but my mind is on cards while I am driving I am sure! So if you see a little red Saturn VUE swerving around beware! Our challenge this week is hosted by Simon Says Stamp and the challenge is to make an easel card. I have never made one before but really like how it turned out but boy is it a bugger to photograph!
The metal piece on the base says Happy Birthday inside and it is fairly heavy so I figured it would hold up the main portion of the card pretty well. My mouse is colored mostly with prisma pencils cause I can't seem to do fur well with my copics but he is a little yellow in the center, need to practice fur more I guess. His sunflower is colored with copics and has a boatload of stickles in the center but boy is it pretty irl! Some more stickles on the butterfly, a handmade banner across the corner and some lace from my buddy Elaine. I am entering this card into the following challenges

Simon Says Stamp   Bingo
Scrapbook Sisters    Banners or bunting
Wee Memories  Celebration

Hi Amanda. This is a wonderful card. I can not believe that you haven't done one before. It is perfect my friend. I love your coloring as always. You always get such brightness out of your work and I love it. Don't swerve to much don't want any accident that would keep you from being creative. lol... Have a wonderful Sunday my friend. Hugs, Lisa
