House Mouse Bird Feeder and Lavender Spring Card

This is a card for my sister because her favorite color is purple or lavender so have made this specifically for her. Using the House Mouse Stamp Lavender Birdfeeder cling I received from Asia King she sent to me. Wasn't that sweet? I feel so lucky to have such sweet friends via the internet.  Here's the official stamp #426496 House Mouse. I stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink, and the Copics were: C01, BV0000, BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08, V12, V115, YG11, YG06. And then highlighted with a White gel pen.
Die Cutting: Used Petite Large Square frame and 2 of the extra dies that come with the set.
The front panel was cut from Making Memories Purple pattern paper. I then folded a piece of 6.25"x 12" Lavender Bazzil for it's card making strength making sure that it would not cut across the fold, I die cut The large frame again. Cut out 2 white inserts for the image on the front, and the insert inside. Also, the flowers outside cut twice to layer and make the flower blossom. Cut the extra flower under the rose on the bow. Also, die cut "Happy Birthday" from Paper Smooches for the sentiment. Roses are from my stash. Cardstocks are Bazzill in lavender and green. 
Assembling: I layered the larger frame to the front panel of the die cut card shape, and threaded ribbon through all the holes all around. The bow is addition to that, made with three loops on each side. After coloring the House Mouse image with my Copics and keeping a lavender feel to the pic, I added white gel dots to each of the stems, birds, and mouse. The shadow is actually BV000, to stay on a true purple/lavender feel.  
Added lace to the edge of the colored panel and glued onto the large purple frame.
Added the die cut flower blossom, with Viva Gel drops to the flower centers. Stamp sentiment reads, "May your day be filled with Sunshine and flowers".
The Ribbon is May Arts 5/8" wide, sheer iridescent organza in Fuchsia.
