A Free Christmas

There are just too many digital images available and too little time to colour and use them all! This latest is a freebie being offered by Bugaboo as part of the Holiday/Special Occasion challenge at CDAC. Isn't the little mouse too adorable? In addition to this being a free image, the papers and sentiment were also a free gift with purchase of a magazine. So this card basically cost me $0 (the buttons even came out of my lost button jar).
All of the Nitwit patterned papers and embellishments (except for the buttons) came free in the latest issue of Paper Crafting Magazine. I coloured the mouse to match the soft blues/pinks/greens in the papers. The only real effort for this card was the addition of some glossy accents to the holly berries and the embossing of the card blank itself (using Cuttlebug "Flourishes" folder). Oh, and the cutting out of the holly leaves ... thank goodness for sharp scissors!!!

MAWTT - sketch, plus choose at least 3 items from the "to do" list (I chose buttons, embossing, leaves, 2 patterned papers)
Creative Belli - anything that starts with "B" (buttons, bumpy [embellished] paper)
