Scrapology - November Card Challenge - 'House Mouse'

 Hello folks!  Can you imagine my delight when I saw that our lovely Joanna Sheen is sponsoring this months card challenge over on Scrapology?  How apt for my first challenge on the team.  Be sure to hop over here to enjoy all the cards made by the talented DT and, of course, Joanna herself.
I had to use the 'Three Wise Mice' stamp set teamed with my favourite Christmas paper by K&Co.  I'm sad to report that this is the very last of my lovely paper.  Hence the small card... it can't be wider than 5 inches. I coloured the image with alcohol markers, cut and layered using my Nestabilities.  I rubbed some gold metallic rub-on around all the brown edges.  I added a sheer ribbon bow and holly leaves punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  I finished off the card by adding some flat backed red beds and glossy accents to the berries in the picture.
I hope you will be able to join in with this months House Mouse Challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations.
Ciao for now!

Stunning card Sandra. What a good idea to use Rub n Buff on the brown card. Thanks for your comment and no I don't play any instruments, I'm not that talented, but admire those that do.
