A Mousey Silent Night!

Good morning all!
I recently added this cutesy PB Mouse stamp to my collection - it's so adorable isn't it! I have made this card as one of my samples for my next class at Heather's, December 12th. It's one of those 'Z' fold cards (see below for side view). I also used the Magnolia 'Silent Night' musical background stamp which I think is fabulous - just awesome for creating christmas backgrounds!
I stamped the mice on watercolour paper, masked, then stamped the music background. I love that I'm using the masking technique a bit more, it really is so great! I coloured with my Distress Inks and added some stickles to the candle flame. I also distressed the edges and background with Tea Dye. I spritzed the finished panel with TA Pearl Glimmer Spray to add a final sheen of sparkle. A red bow and some bling finish it off. The back panel is embossed with one of the new christmas cuttlebug embossing folders - wow, it's gorgeous - so much detail!

Well, that's all for today folks! Thanks for stopping by and checking me out and taking the time to leave a much appreciated comment!
Also, I wanted to mention that I'm in my first blog hop with TMITA - it's coming up December 9th. There's a link over in my sidebar to go and check out all the fun details!
I wish you all a great day with lots of happiness and smiles!
