Christmas Present.

I made this card this afternoon using the great sketch from Mojo Monday. I coloured this sweet House Mouse image with promarkers and stickled the pompom and brim of the hat. The sentiment, ribbon and sticky ribbon are all from Papermania. The DP is from Forever Friends from last year. I cut out snowflakes from white glitter paper with Sizzix dies in my Cuttlebug and used nesties to cut the circles. The DP has snowflakes on it which unfortunately don't show up very well even on the first photo which was taken outside! Black jewels are from my stash. All the edges are inked with black. The next photo is not much better and just reminds me that the Merry Christmas could have been stamped better!!
But this is not a Christmas card it is a gift card holder. This House Mouse image was also coloured with Promarkers. The corners to hold the gift card were cut out using a punch. I think this fits the Cute Card Thursday challenge for hidden treasure. I think I might be pushing my luck with the Pollycrafts challenge for black, white and one colour!!

So the challenges I hope to enter are:-
Mojo Monday:- Sketch.
Sophisticat Challenge:- Make anything to hold something eg gift voucher, cash etc.
Pollycraft Challenge:- Black, white and one colour.
House Mouse Monday Challenge:- A challenge from the past year - #50 gift card holder.
Cute Card Thursday:- Hidden Treasure.
Allsorts Challenge:- Snowflakes.
I'm off to post this now and enter the challenges.
Thanks for looking and please tell me what you think. It makes my day to read your kind comments.
