Mickey Mouse Birthday Card

This card measures 5ins x 5ins and is made using a hand cut, white linen effect card blank.
This is the card I made for my daughter Lucy's birthday this year.  The whole family (Tom, Laura, Iris, Bertie, Lucy and I) have all booked a holiday in Disneyland Paris in July next year (2020) and while we are there it will  be Lucy's birthday (again), hence the "this time next year ....." sentiment.
The Mickey Mouse "embellishment" was actually the price tag from a pair of Mickey Mouse pumps I found reduced in Primark and now safely put away for said holiday (I am planning big time already). I simply added a layer of Ranger Glossy Accents to make Mickey "pop" and look less of a tag. The tag hole was carefully covered over with a star. 
I used a red paper with a tiny white polka dots from an origami stack from The Works. The small glittered, self adhesive letters came from Hobbycraft (£1 per pack) 

The words are mat and layered on white and then silver card.  The main polka dot panel is also mat and layered on silver card.  I have then added a little faux stitching and clusters of three dots using a black fine liner pen to draw the whole design together.  

I am so excited about next year I might just pop ............
