Birthday singer

I made another card for my daughter's roommate, Rachael and since she is an opera singer I thought this would be appropriate.  I have seen this punch art mouse at Christmas time and thought it would be a great idea for a birthday card.  Check out JC Mickey card, which is one of the cards that I saw recently.  The mouse is used with the SU ornament, word window, small oval and butterfly punches.  I used spellbinders rectangle for the book and the ornament punch for the tail.  The nose is just a small round punch which I think is about 1/2 inch.  The background on the card to the left is sizzix EF and the card on the right is a rubber stamp Composer's Dream from Stampabilities. I used Tim Holtz distress ink to give them both some more contrast. I did the same with the title, "Happy Birthday to you". Such a cute mouse, I just love it and I hope Rachael will too!  Happy Birthday Rachael!!!
