Happy Christmouse Card

Hi everyone

Today I'll be sharing a card I made to enter into these challenges:
Paper Smooches - July SPARKS! Challenge

Moxie Fab WorldStamp It! Cards Week Challenge

I used a sketch from Paper Smooches Designer Drafts 4, to build this card. I did modify it a little bit, but no major changes. I've pointed to the sketch I used on this picture (sorry it's so small): 

Here's the card I made: 

The dotted pattern on the present was made with the dots on the cheek of the dog-stamp from the same stampset:

I used "Santa Paws" from Paper Smooches on this card. I stamped, colored and cut out the mouse and present, and diecut a banner shape using a Papertrey Ink die. I stamped the sentiment, and masked over it before stamping the mouse's tail overtop. I then adhered the mouse down, and added some black enamel accents to it's nose. The banner was adhered to a kraft panel, and I rounded the top corners. I used a white gelpen to add some dots to the one corner.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
