Merry Kiss-Mouse

Another wet and chilly day here and not much likelihood of it improving over the weekend so fingers crossed I may get chance to get on with some more christmas cards... after I finish the housework of course !

The image and sentiment I used for this card is one of the decoupage sheets from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse triple cd printed onto photo paper. I don't usually do pink and blue together but I had this last bit of ribbon which was just long enough to tuck under the edges of the LOTV paper with enough spare for a bow.. albeit knotted with some baker's twine. I addded some Tattered Lace snowflakes (cut from snippets of card) with added gems and a snowflake charm to finish.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

October Rudolph Days challenge 'anything goes christmas'

Pixies Snippets Playground 200th challenge 'use snippets' my 3rd skip over to the playground

House Mouse & Friends challenge 'all white or option of anything goes' I went for the option

Time Out challenge 'christmas + twist use pink +/or purple' I twisted with the pink

Winter Wonderland challenge 'anything goes christmas'

Papertake Weekly challenge 'take your pick' I picked technique theme decoupage

Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a fun weekend

Oh what a pretty card Andrea - I have that same stamp and it's so sweet. A CD would have been a much better idea though :) LOVE your bow tied with baker's twine, it looks really great and also matches the image/border perfectly. Of course LOTV papers are always the tops :))

Sweet image and love all the snowy layers. The colors are wonderful, that pop of color with the mat and ribbon looks wonderful. Thanks, Kanda, for joining us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and sharing your card with us.

The pink & blue are so pretty together on this card. The blues of your focal mat & the background snowflakes look great and the delicate pink is just right for this delightful HMeece, all ready for the Big Day. Feels very icy, with the snowflake dp, the falling snow, and the added details of the dimensional snowflake & silvery snowflake charm. Delightful. TFS & Hugs
