Mice and presents

CR00459 square

The annual hunt for small furry Christmassy critters to go on a card for my mum. I’d narrowed it down to a handful of options, but ultimately this one won out because of the mouse butt. I love that little furry mouse butt 🙂

I decided to keep the design simple and just find a nice image, colour it with my Copics, layer it over some patterned paper on the card base, and add a sentiment and a bit of sparkle. Nothing clever, nothing gimmicky, just some cute Christmassy mice and their presents.
