Birthday Wishes card for CPS sketch #244

I made this little card for the Card Positioning Systems sketch #244.  I really like this sketch, it's simple, yet effective.  I love this little mouse peeking out from the present, he was cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  I'm just not too sure about the yellow though.  At first I had cut out a matching yellow patterned paper for the present (from the same line of papers) but the patterns all seemed to get lost within one another so I felt it needed a bold, plain colour.  I just don't know if the yellow works? 

Then when I stamped my sentiment on I pushed too hard and it looks a bit 'thick' (now I know why I always stamp onto cardstock first then adhere the cardstock to the card- at least that way if you muck up the stamping you don't muck up the whole card!)  Never mind.

Here is the sketch in case you're interested in playing along:


Papers are from: Lilybee Designs - This and That collection
Birthday Wishes stamp - Kaisercraft
Birthday Bash cricut cartridge (mouse, circle and scalloped circle)

Thanks for looking!
