Guest designer challenge 2 for house mouse and friends

Welcome to my 2nd post as a HMAF guest designer hope you are all going to join in by popping across here.
The challenge this time is lets eat, and I chose to make the earliest festive card I think I have ever made using one of the CD images. I think these wee mice eating candy canes or as we would call them in the UK peppermint canes are so cute and as the weather here has been a mix of wintery and Spring it was easy to make on one of the dull and dreary days and believe it was a dull November .December day not early April when I made it.


I mounted the image on gold mirri-card for my focal image.

I decided to keep my colour palette simple and used a white base card dressed with some red patterned mirri-card offset against some embossed white centura pearl card embossed with snowflakes using a crafter's companion  3D embossing folder. 
I didn't add another sentiment as the canes the mice are eating
 spell the word JOY  so I didn't think it needed anything else.


Hope you'll all pop along to Housemouse and join in the fun
