Christmas Gifts

Good evening everyone, this is my card for this weeks CD Sunday Challenge - it's been a long time since I managed to join in with everything that has been going on at home, I'm so pleased that I managed to make it this week.


I have used an adorable House Mouse decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Christmas Project Book.  I embossed some green card stock and highlighted the embossed areas with some white ink and added some glitter to the centres.  I also added some glitter to the little mouses hat and the snow and some 3D Crystal Lacquer to the snow in the sky and on his coat.  The border is a Fiskars border punch and the ribbon is from my stash.

I have decorated the inside of my card and you can also see the decoupage layers in this photograph.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - Christmas in July
