Flying By To Say Happy Birthday

I have 3 birthday's in October and I needed to make more birthday cards. I seem to always need birthday cards more than anything.
I used some Tim Holtz water color paper. I applied some Chipped Sapphire distress ink all around the outer edges and then in the center I applied Dusty Concord distess ink. I took some water on my hand and splattered some water all over the paper and then took a paper towel to dry the spots. I put some perfect pears on my craft sheet and mixed it with some \water and put it on my paint brush and splattered it across the paper to give it some shine and to look a little like stars. I also took my Signo Uniball white pen and made a few small dots for some brighter stars.

For the circle I cut it out using MFT Die-namics and then I used Dried marigold on the circle. I thought it could use some other color so I used Rusty hinge to a few spots. I also splattered water on it.
I wanted some trees on the card so I found Mama Elephant Winter Wonderland has a birch tree and I used Versafine black ink. Some of them are 2nd generation stamped. I don't have any bats in my stamp stash so I just took the birds from the same stamp set and placed them on the card.

The mouse image is from Gerda Steiner Designs Challenge. I used a lot of markers to get the colors I wanted. I will list them all at the bottom . I used wink of stella clear to put on the cape and purple band of the hat. I used Zig 2 way glue to put the image on. Then for the whole front panel I use 3m foam tape and put it on some orange card stock.
The sentiments are from 2 different stamps. Flying by to say is from My Creative Time Fly away sentiments , Happy is from Simon Says Stamps Love this and  birthday is from Simon Says Stamp Happy stamps.
