House Mouse Christmas in Blues

Today I am sharing a sweet House Mouse image from a recent shopping adventure... I can't remember if I got her from ebay or SCS but she is sweet. I was getting it ready to assemble and saw a smudge on the image area, went to brush it off and somehow smudged the heck out of it, so I had to move a sketch element (from Dutch Dare Challenges) onto the image to cover it! I am glad I had not squished down the tab part yet and it could be moved. I used the colors to fit the challenge at House Mouse which was to use something football related, and I picked the Dallas Cowboy colors- blue and silver and white! I made sure to use 3 pieces of paper for Jingle Belles and snowflakes for the Christmas challenge too and since it's animal, it fits DYSU.

Colored with copics, stickles on the bow, Bo Bunny papers, SU cardstock as far as I know, misc snowflake brads and ribbon. I could not find my Christmas stamps this morning so I typed a sentiment on the computer and added it.

Dutch Dare sketch
DYSU- animals
Weekly Christmas Card Challenge- snowflakes
House Mouse- for the love of the game
Jingle Belles- three patterned papers
