Squirrel and Mouse

     I love animals on Christmas cards and these two images from Fabrika Fantasy just tickled me.  I debated for several minutes which one I wanted to use and finally decided to put them together on the same card, thereby ending the debate.  :-D

Color scheme is for the challenge at C.R.A.F.T.

     I'm so frustrated with trying to photograph glitter and sparkle that I'm nearly ready to throw away my digital camera.  I added sparkly glitter to the snowflake paper and sparkle gel ink to the tree and snow in the squirrel image and you can barely see it !  Of course, the glare from the metallic silver paper doesn't help but there was nothing I could do to get rid of that, no matter how hard I tried.

     I did manage some fun dimension with the different layers and the little blue mouse by using Pop Dots but now I wish I had matted the layers.  Sigh....

     I know it sounds like I'm full of complaints on this one but IRL, I love this card!  :-D

Well now....Isn't this just the cutest thing! I just LOVE their faces and happiness. I can see why it was hard to choose and ended up using both. A winner! Made me smile big time! Absolutely darling card! Who will be the lucky recipient?
