House-Mouse with Sparkle

Today's card was created for two challenges (HMFMC149 and SC446) and one purpose ( to get started on this year's Christmas cards)! I am making a real effort to play along with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge because those little mice are so darn cute and I have over 60 of them in my stamp collection, half of which have never seen ink. My goal is to use each and every one of them by year's end!

Here's a link to Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge 446. There are lots of creative cards using this sketch found there!

Stamps: Light Wrap by House-Mouse Designs Inc.
Sentiment by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Papers: Whisper White and Poppy Parade by Stampin' Up
Christmas Traditions by the Paper Studio
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Lady Bug, Copic Markers
Embellishments: Xmas Red Stickles by Ranger,  Holly Gemstones by the Paper Studio
