Moving Along with the Times Challenge - Twas the Night Before Christmas.....

New challenge for Team A at Moving Along with the Times.  Our challenge theme is the poem 'Twas the night before Christmas...."  As you can see I've gone with "Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse!" or his friend for that matter.  I've had this stamp in my stash for absolutely years and I'm ashamed to say this is the first time I've inked it up.  It's just darling and I have added to it with a little touch of fairy dust from my inevitable Stampin' Up! stash.  The sentiment is just perfect from Snowflake Sentiments and the stockings are from Stampin' Up! set Ready for Christmas and I've shortened them to make sure they fit the snug little beds of these two uber cute mice.  I stamped and coloured the images with my Stampin' Blends and then fussy cut the mice, nutshells and the candle out. I stamped the whole image again onto my matting layer and just coloured the match stick and then stuck on the cut out piece.  I've then layered the design onto a piece of Merry Little Christmas designer series paper and finally onto a card base of cherry cobbler.  A sprinkle of gold metallic enamel stars and I'm done..

Please do join our challenge at MAWTT and share your Christmas joy.

Thanks for stopping by

Just cute as a mouse in a shell! Totally delightful image, and love the way you've done the fab coloring and the little gold star sequins. The starry background mat looks really cool with this themed image. TFS & Hugs
