House Mouse challenge #19

I've done it, I've done it. Managed to make a card in time for the House Mouse Monday Challenge. The card we made had to have some form of embossing on it and to include, of course, a House Mouse image.

This is my attempt. The stamp is called Wrapped and Ready. It was coloured using Prisma pencils and solvent. Kindyglitz was added to the snow (well I think it's snow) around their feet.The Sketch is from Splitcoast Stampers SC 183. Cardstock from the WorldWin range and ribbon and bling from my stash. The embossing was done on a cuttlebug using the Christmas Decoration embossing folder. I swiped the edge of the image and the embossed areas with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink to tie in the gold layer. I felt that it didn't need a greeting, the bows on the mice are self explanatory...Yep, Christmas. lol

Hope you like my card and thanks for looking.

Wow, you are amazing with colored pencils. Did you do something special with the bows? I had to do a close up look to see if they were real or just colored in. :)
