60th Birthday for you

Hi there everyone hope you had a nice day my day was spent looking around estate agents we want to move to a Bungalow but there just isn’t anything available at the moment so we have to keep looking and hope that something crops up
Can you believe its nearly March already how the time flies! 
My card today is for several challenges l hope you like it and here it is

I thought l would show both cards they are exactly the same other than the lighening on each card 
The 1st picture shows the backing papers pretty dull but the 
2nd shows them as they really are but the white card more of a creamy colour too 
What do you think?
White Scalloped card & Blue card Stock
Backing papers was a candy win many many months back so not sure of the name 
House Mouse Image & Sentiment
60th Sentiment Computer Generated
Coloured with Pro/Fleximarkers
Pearls, Mementos Ink & 3D Sticky pads for mounting
Entering into the followering challenges
Thank you for your time and popping in  enjoy your week

  3. Sandra, your House Mouse is soooooo cute!. I love both colour ways of your card, but if I had to choose I'd pick the second one with the warmer tones.

    Good luck with the house (bungalow)hunting!!!

  4. What a fabulous card, love the image and the papers, can't believe both cards are the same but look so different, camera's, bain of our lives. Great layout too.
    My Daughter says we should move to a bungalow, but it would have to be a big one as I need a craftroom and bedrooms for the boys to sleep over in, so no point I say.
