Hello Folks
Another Christmas card today - Christmas crafting now at full steam!!
I began by a covering a 5x7 card blank with a striped paper from a Docraft's Tulip paper pad. I then cut a Spellbinder's A5 Tranquil Moments using a blue spotty paper from the paper pad and attached it to the card base as shown.
The image is Xmouse ornament from Penny Black which I stamped onto watercolour card and coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils (all the colours are from the essentials pack)
  • mouse - 003, 004, 089 and 009
  • star - 067, 071 and 073
  • star - 112 and 117

I cut the image out with a Spellbinders 2012 Heirloom ornament die, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and attached to the card base with Pinflair. I added a blue ribbon bow (from my stash) to the top of the image.
The sentiment is from LOTV's handwritten Christmas phrases and cut out using Spellbinder's A5 Tranquil moments die.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
