House Mouse #105 Christmas Sparkle


This week, the challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, is Christmas Sparkle.  After much scrounging around, I found this holiday stamp which I got in a lot, and someone had unmounted it.  Soooooo, I don't have a name for it.  If anyone knows, please let me know so I can mark it.

My card is Ocean Mist, Fresh Avocado, and Pure White card stock from Gina K. Designs.  My dp is a scrap.  I ran my diecut oval through the Cuttlebug, using the 5x7 Holly Stripe EF.  The coloring was done with Copics, and the sponging is with VersaMagic ink.  I used a sentiment from Hero Arts.  I added my favorite Stickles (Diamond), to the holly leaves and flakes, and Crystal Effects to the berries.  Glad I was able to get the sparkle to show this time, cause we all know how stubborn the photos can be with that.

Thanks for stopping by, and I may be back with another entry, since I have the day to myself!

Looks like he's singing "Joy to the World"! What a fun image. Your card is beautiful - love the diamond stickles :) Have a great day, enjoy the quietness of being alone!

I thought he might be trying to catch a snowflake on his tongue (maybe between verses of Joy to the World!) Great card, Mary Anne!

Just beautiful.Love the embossed panel behind your image and you are so right about the sparkle, pictures never do it justice, but your photo is wonderful.
