Blue, Blue Birthday.....

Hello everyone: No, it's not a sad birthday card, it's just BLUE.  I will link this card to a few challenges at the end of this post, one of them requires using this color for our cards.
This yummy slice of cake is from an old retired Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles" and I love it for really fun Birthday cards.

I stamped the image onto Strathmore water color paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed it, then colored it with Sakura Koi water colors. After I finished coloring the cake, I felt like it needed something extra so I stamped the little candle from a House Mouse stamp called "Birthday Cupcake" and fussy cut it, what's a birthday cake without candles, right?

I just adore this chubby little mice, with their bellies full of cake.
The pattern papers are from my stash, the one with the flowers I think it's from Stampin' Up!, but I'm not totally sure.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

Both the sentiment and the Pinwheel are from the same set. I die cut the sentiment with THIS Spellbinders die set called "Oval Regalia"

I'm linking this card to the following challenges.
