Once Upon a Time........

Good Afternoon, its been a beautiful day here in Lancashire, blue skies and plenty of sunshine though it is going a little misty now as the sun sets. I have been busy colouring some images for my Christmas cards and thought I would colour this one as it seems just right for the challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts this week which is "Whatever Lights your Candle". The image is a House Mouse stamp that I have had for years, I coloured with Copics and edged the image and the papers with Distress Ink - Walnut Stain before matting onto kraft paper. The bp is from a pad by cArt-Us and the other papers are from the Lost & Found pad by My Mind's Eye, the sentiment is by LOTV and cut with Nesties, the roses and gold berries are from Wild Orchid. I finished with a leaf, buttons, lace, ric rac ribbon and gold Stickles from my stash.

I would also like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - A Christmas Mouse
Floweret - Christmas
Mami Doodles - Christmas
Wags 'n Whiskers - Christmas
Samuel Taylors - Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas
