Christmas Tree

    This is my third challenge for which I have been lucky  enough to be a guest designer at House Mouse and Friends. The theme for this latest challenge is Christmas.
   I have eight grandchildren and I thought this card would be slightly different to the ones that they normally receive - a Christmas tree pop up card.

   For this card I made use of the little stamps that you get with Joanna Sheen's House Mouse designs stamp sets. All were coloured using Promarkers and then cut out (the fiddly bit). The lights on the trees used one of the stamps several  times and were cut and pasted onto the tree. Peel off stars were added and the little 'fairy' mouse had glitter added to the wings.
   Two other little mice were added to the folds either side of the tree.
   Finally designer paper and 'happy Christmas' peel offs were added to the base.

    I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Send A Smile 4 Kids - anything goes for kids
   Creative Inspirations - anything goes
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - light it up
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra - anything as long as it's Christmas
   Imagination Crafts - merry Christmas
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Winter Wonderland - a Christmas mouse
   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - anything goes
