Skating Mice

     Another one of those totally adorable images from Rick St. Dennis!  How could I not use this one for a Christmas card?  On the RSD FB page, they have a challenge for "Sparkles" so, of course, this had to have tons of glitter.  :-D


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, added the glitter to the clothing, the tassels and her skates, and cut it with a die from QuicKutz.  I cut the "Believe..." sentiment with a border die from Spellbinders to give it the curve.  The ribbon is from my stash and I just curled it to make the bow.  Everything was layered onto green CS and then onto the card front.  I tried to make it look like a Christmas package and I think the curly ribbon accomplished that.

The bow on here looks like it should be a Christmas package - and I think it is with that cute and fun image on the front. So sparkly and pretty.

Those mice are quite the performers, aren't they? I love your design, especially the bow. This looks like a Christmas present. And, of course, a handmade card from you is a gift in itself.
