Merry Christmas

Welcome back, everyone.
Today is the start of the new challenge #68 over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends

There are two sponsors for this challenge and I am using Christmas Wreath from Lemon Shortbread


Please go to Lil Patch of Crafty Friends blog to check out the other designer's projects using 
 Kitty Bee Designs, our other sponsor. 

With the holiday season fast approaching 
I decided on using this cute mouse sitting in a Christmas wreath.

I colored this sweet image with colored pencils and used Gamsol to blend the colors out on the wreath. The ribbon/bow and the bells were colored with Spectrum Noir Sparkles. I added gold twine to the wreath and then added some outline sticker dots on the wreath. Also, I mounted that cute image over an oval mirror cardstock piece. On the panel, under the oval, I stamped tall pine trees from Stampscapes and then added a Tim Holtz die cut pine tree just to add additional interest.

The sentiment is another Tim Holtz die. I used a silver card stock paper and after I glued that on I didn't care for the look so I added that same sentiment die cut in gold cardstock and attached it off center to give it a contrast. I love the way it turned out. Sorry, it's not showing up well in this pic.


Hopefully, this card has inspired you a little. 
Just remember we are a little over 9 weeks out til Christmas is here.

I am submitting my project in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping in today. I will be back soon
