Winter Wonderland DT - Have a Mousey Christmas

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at Winter Wonderland, but as always I cannot move on with out saying how fabulous the entries were into my recipe challenge last week, some great baking went on and some stunning creations, really enjoyed hopping about to see all you talented crafters.

The new challenge this week at Winter Wonderland is hosted by the very talented Lynsey and our sponsor is 
Whimsy Stamps and the theme is

Have a Mousey Christmas (show a mouse on your creation)

I could not resist the first inking of my winning Whiff of Joy stamp that I won from Jane at Jane's lovely cards and felt that this was the perfect opportunity to present her

Here is my DT creation for this week

It is an easel card and I used gold mirror card on the base and the papers are from the Papermania Silent Night stack.  I used an MS punch and a Nellie die for the image plate. I used a brilliance ink (an olive one oh I think that is correct) to edge the image.  The ribbons from stash not sure where purchased from now sorry but the bottom bow creation is a pull ribbon.  The pearls from the Hobby House and the sentiment on the easel came with the stamp and the inner is a Papermania. The flowers are from a local department store and a little gold stickles was added for the Christmas feel.  I used the stickles around the edges too after I had distressed them so the stickles would just pick up lightly.  The charm just showing near the ribbon is also from the Hobby House.

Here is a close up of the inner return and the pulled bow.
This is the close up of the image, I used copics to colour and a white gel pen for the highlights, I did use a little atyou glitter but it does not show up in the photograph.
So sweet isnt' she.
