It's a CAS Birthday Party!

Hello Peeps! I have a fun CAS / 3D / Pop-Up Birthday Party card to share that Ive created for the current BIRTHDAY Challenge #HMFMC191, over at House-Mouse & Friends MC, found here > HMFMC.
 Inside the card is a full blown Mousey Party!  heheheh...
I started this card by using a Sizzix/Pop 'N Cut die by Ellison for the "Party" word center cut. You'll love the versatility of the tabs and scoring dies on this next fabulous precision Card Base Pop-Up die set by Frantic Stamper that I've used directly above the Party lines to create my tabs to hold the balloons and Party Hats. So I went a little nuts with the over-layering business, but maybe that's because my brain thinks it's necessary to compensate for my CAS front! LOL!  Never been quick as CAS anything, so that's a huge step for busy-looking cards by me.  ha! 
Stamps: Stampa Rosa, "Party Mouse" by House-Mouse Designs, #322E, from yr 1999
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, COPICS
Paper: Martha Stewart Designer Dble sided/ Glittered Birthday CS, MM Textured Blues, Greens and Yellows, Heavy White CS
Accessories;  Frantic Stamper Precision Die "Pop-UP Card Base" #FRA-DIE-09414, ; Creative Expressions Ornate Pierced Square die by Sue Wilson (for front of card); Ellison Die, Balloon, Party Hat and swirl Paper Punches, Stickles, Martha Stewart Ultra-Fine Glitter, Rhinestones...
