House Mouse Christmas Card.... three wise mice

 Hello folks!  Just love this House Mouse Christmas stamp... three wise mice.  How cute are they?  I didn't want to detract from the main image too much so I kept everything else pretty simple.
 I made a large 8x8 kraft card blank and layered up with various pieces of square card including some brown gingham (seem to have used a lot of this lately)  I embossed the final layer with Cuttlebug 'random dots' embossing folder and rubbed over with metallic rub on.
The sentiment is from the stamp set.  I shaped it and adhered with dimensional glue gel.  The holly is cut from the main image that I stamped and watercoloured again.  I die cut the decorative corners and popped them in place.  The final touch was to add glossy accents to all the holly berries and some red gingham ribbon.
Ciao for now!
