Merry Mice with Holly Jolly Layers

We are back with Merry Mice for today's card :o) I couldn't leave it alone for long .... those mice are far too cute!

I wanted to stay with subtle colours for this one. But .... it didn't quite turn out that way :o) The hat had to be red. What Christmas hat isn't? So I 'had' to incorporate Real Red into the combination.

I used Smoky Slate for the mice this time .... I'm not sure if I prefer them grey to light brown :o) Both look good!

The lovely sentiment comes from one of our new Hostess stamp sets - Holly Jolly Layers. I stamped it twice, once in Real Red and again in Pear Pizzazz. The red layer was punched out using the 1 ¾" circle punch and the green layer was punched out using the 1" circle punch.

I created the banners using the Triple Banner punch.

The images were coloured using the Aqua Painter and ink pads.
