Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge No 25 -Sketch

Hi, this is my card for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge No 25, Sketch

My first thoughts were for the three round shapes, snowflakes and using the Alpine Christmas Waltzingmouse Stamp Set. I chose traditional Christmas colours, red and green and paired them with white and silver. I coloured the windows of the snowy village in using promarkers.

The sentiment is from a new Waltzingmouse set  'Tis the Season, stamped in red, a lovely flamboyant script. The snowflakes are stamped and finished using silver embossing powder, then mounted up on clear plastic mounts so that they are "mobile" and can "wobble" standing  away from the card, rather than using foam pads with a static position. This is not easy to show on a flat photograph !!

Thank you for visiting
