Christmas Mouse

Hi!  The theme at Merry Monday this week is The Night Before Christmas and I just had to play along!  Way back in the early 2000's I bought some stamps from Imagina Clarity (now Clarity Stamps) that were part of a series of Night Before Christmas stamps.  This card was made using the first stamp in the series.

I'm also playing along with the Anything Goes theme at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.


I was going for a vintage, yet CAS look, so colored my image with browns and peachy Zig markers.  I added a pierced frame and called it done!  A pretty simple card, but oh, such a cute image!




Products used:

Stamps:  Imagina Clarity
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  Bristol Smooth, In the Buff (MFT)
Dies;  Pierced Square Frames (MFT)
Accessories:  Zig Markers

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add: This card got a shout out at Merry Monday and Happy Little Stampers.
