Henry Christ-Mouse!

This gorgeous image 'Henry Mouse with Christmas Bauble' by Whiff of Joy was sent to me by my lovely friend Kaz - thank you...I love him! *U*
I followed the Midnight Madness sketch...stretching it to make a square card. I decided to go with an all white background, using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots', 'Snowflakes' and 'Snow Dots' folders for some texture...perfect for the Charisma Cardz 'No Patterned Papers' challenge. I added some sparkly ribbon, and used a Sakura stardust pen on the little snowflakes (cut using a Cuttlebug die) and on Henry's bauble...and some Stickles on the fur on his hat...so I'm also entering this card for the Simon Says Stamp 'All that sparkles' challenge.

Very wonderful card, Helen! Beautiful winter white. You did a super job pulling off the white embossed backgrounds and it really highlights the image of Henry ( and how well you colored him)! Thanks so much for taking some time to play our sketch, see you next week, xox ~Jeni & MMSC Design Team
