Christmas Mouse

Well we're just about a week past mid-summer, it's been raining all day and I've had to put the heat on this evening ... so what else would I feel like making but a Christmas card ;)

This card was inspired by Marianne's beautiful blue bauble over at the Muse Christmas challenge.  I was looking for a totally different stamp (yet to find!) when I came across this oldie Elzybells stamp.  Coloured with watercolours and lots of Spectrum Noir sparkle added to the blue bauble.  I also splattered my BG with various green watercolours.
My sentiment is a partial stamp of this Eat Cake Graphics one ...
