ABC Christmas Challenge - U is for...

We have a new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...I'm the host, and the theme is:

'U is for Unusual Christmas Colours'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Bugaboo Stamps:
Prize - 7 digis of the winner's choice!

I picked picked pink and aqua as my colour combo...and used papers from the 'Now & Then' pad by My Mind's Eye. The image is 'Christmas Mouse Ornaments' by Bugaboo Stamps...I coloured it using watercolour pencils. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching to the papers using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I added a sentiment from the 'Handwritten Sentiments' set by Lili of the Valley...which I curved to fit the curve of the circle. The snowflake was cut using a Memory Box die, the sparkly brad is by American Crafts, and the adhesive pearls are from Hobbycraft.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
