Love at Christmas

This little card manages to fit four challenges this week, I don't think I have ever managed that before
House Mouse Challenge - Non traditional Christmas colours
Papertake Weekly - No red or green
Inspirational Card Sketches - I followed the sketch!
Colour Create - Lilac, Aqua, Black and White

The base card is a very pale lilac, the aqua panel was embossed with the sissix snowflakes folder, the star punch is Martha Stewart and all the lettering is making memories. The stamp is from the acrylic Christmas house mouse set. I added pearls for the mistletoe berries, and the black snowflakes are a cuttlebug die

OH my gosh...this is cute and beautiful at the same time! The mice are alway cute. But those black snowflakes are just so beautiful! I never would have thought of black snowflakes. You are so creative. When is your flight back to the UK? I'm glad you'll be with the kids at Christmas! Happy Christmas to you my friend.

Mornin' Ens, just love your little mice, they are always so adorable. Wish my MS punch worked, have bought two and either I am to weak or the punch is not sharp enought for cardstock, ah well probably me again. Take care on you little jaunt across the pond and have a WONDERFUL Christmas. Hugs, Jan
