Three Christmas mice

Hello everyone, happy Sunday

I finally got to spend some time in my craft room this weekend and here is one of the cards I made - 
I began by cutting a paper from Bobunny's Elf magic paper pad with a Tonic layering square die which I then matted onto a piece of blue Bazzil card. I added some blue velvet ribbon to one side of the base and then attached some lace and pearl trim (both from the Ribbon Girl) onto the top of the ribbon. I then attached it to a 6 inch scalloped card blank.
I cut a Memory Box frostyville corner from white card and added it to the top corner of the card base.
The image is Penny Black's Caroling Trio which I coloured with the following Promarkers - 
  • mice - ivory, mustard, raw sienna and sunkissed pink
  • scarf - denim blue, cloud blue and cadet blue
  • lantern - terracotta, burnt umber, walnut, orange, gold, canary, tulip yellow, ivory, pastel beige and khaki
  • snow - icicle
  • sky -pastel blue

I cut the image out using Spellbinder's Grand decorative ovals, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and matted onto a Spellbinder's oval nestie cut from blue Bazzil card. I attached the image to the card base with glue gel.

To finish I cut 3 memory box snowflakes from white card, attached them to the card base and then added a pearl (from the Ribbon Girl) to the centre of each one.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - - November challenge - Anything goes
