Ornamental Mouse

I've used one of my favourite Christmas colour combinations of teal & silver on this card...together with this adorable little mouse ('Xmouse Ornament' by Penny Black). I followed the Friday Sketchers sketch...keeping to the DL shape. I've combined it with the 'Buttons & Bows' theme of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge...well, in my case it's actually 'Buttons & Bow'! lol
The gorgeous snowflake paper is by My Mind's Eye ('Festive Frost'), and the lighter turquoise paper is the reverse of one of the 'Figgy Pudding' sheets by BasicGrey, which I've embossed with my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder, then sanded to reveal the white core. The little silver snowflakes were cut using a Cuttlebug die, and the buttons are by Papermania - they were clear, but I coated them with some clear nail varnish, before sprinkling them with glamour dust for a touch of sparkle.
