Christmas Mouse Sleeping

A fun card to make using my newest little digi 'Christmas Mouse Sleeping'. I put the image on a handmade Christmas ball with the first lines from 'Twas the night before Christmas... Not a even a mouse.' around it. It's hanging freely on a string of clear sequins. The front is embossed using cuttlebugs Spots & Dots. Not that you can see them very clearly but the snowflakes are little punched out silver ones and then covered with roughly ripped parchment paper and embossed with little lines. The white lace at the top is represent icicles. The white ribbon has had the edges touched up with Kindy Glitz sparkle.
I carried the theme into the inside of the card with 2 more snowflakes. The verse is a very cute one all about making coco and going to bed on Christmas Eve.
