Secret Agent Birthday Card

This week was anything goes week for Cricut Cardz Challenge #38 and since I had a close friend who is celebrating a birthday this week I chose to use her card as my DT challenge.  I wanted to create something that was fun and humorous to try to match my girlfriend's personality.  Hopefully when she receives her card in the mail she'll love it. 

Late last week I received my new Happy Hauntings cartridge in the mail and when I started looking at the various cuts I was drawn to this little mouse in his cape.  My first thought was that he looked like a Sherlock Holmes wanna be and thus my card was born.  The little spy glass in his hands was created using the butterfly net outline from Pooh and Friends to which I adhered a piece of acetate to make it look a little more realistic. 

The shape of the card and the "shhh" are from Graphically Speaking.  I haven't used this cartridge much lately but was glad to be able to dig it back out because I almost forgot how much I like it.

Not shown in the pics is that there is a second page to the "file" that includes our birthday greetings.  Both of the file pages were cut using one of the shapes from George and were then stapled to the file.
