Mistletoe & Mice

I received some adorable Gillian Roberts images from my lovely friend Cathy last week...I couldn't resist having a play, as this one ('Mistletoe & Mice') is perfect for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge's theme of 'Winter Love'. I followed the Creative Inspirations Challenge sketch...and have also managed to squeeze in a few other challenges: Stampin' for the Weekend's colour combo of 'Lilac & Silver'; the first Sketchy Colors Challenge where the dominant colour must be 'Purple/Lilac'; and the 'Christmas' theme of the Charisma Cardz, Everybody Art, Papertake Weekly, Pollycraft Monday Challenges. The spotty paper is My Mind's Eye (from the '29th Street Market' collection, the sentiment stamp is by Craft UK and the ric-rac is by Papermania. I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and 'Snow Dots' folders to emboss the lilac card, and the 'Ice Crystal' die to cut the snowflake.
