Birthday mouse

Matching the (belated) Fadengrafik Challenge "Birthday card for a child", I'd like to present my DT card. I made it for my little mouse, that is my friend's girl who turned 3 recently. 
Obviously, it's a rather simple girly card - a little mouse with a flower, and a stitched border made of pink yarn and white pearls. 
In the end, I added shimmering rhinestones where tiny bubbles used to be in the original image.
On the inside, I placed a soft pink paper that I covered up with a punched white cardstock.
A little contribution to the September collection of Create in Austria - artwork created by Austrians and/or in Austria.

Note: Due to the Fadengrafik Challenge being a little late, you'll be able to link up your child-related creations here until the end of October. The October challenge will nevertheless starat on time, meaning we'll have two challenges running at the same time for that month.
