Peek-a-Boo Birthday mouse was stamped then colored with Copics and surrounded by fun Rainbrow Brights patterned paper.

I added a couple Little Bits Balloons and sprinkled around several enamel shapes.

Next I used new Big Blooms Daisy with Hello Script.

After coloring the bloom and leaves, I cut out each then layered over Sugar Cube card stock embossed with Dotted Lattice embossing folder.
