1st Christmas Card for this Year

I know that it is still early to start making my Christmas Cards, but I have some medical issues coming up in the near future, so wanted to start my cards early while I could still get up and move with some amount of comfort.  I love the new Christmas stamps from StampinUp.  This mouse is especially cute and so I used the color challenge #315 from Pals Paper Arts. This color combo works really well for this card.  I stamped out the greeting in Dapper Denim,  then stamped out the mouse image twice and colored one with my colored pencils.  I fussy cut the sweater from the second stamped image and colored it with the So Saffron then glued it in place.  The star is cut from a piece of glitter ribbon.  I die cut my image in an oval shape and then cut a scalloped oval from Old Olive cardstock.  I am also going to enter this card in a sketch challenge #62 at Stamp Ink Paper.
