Ornament mouse

Hello everyone!  I  have a card to show you today, I am getting ahead for Christmas and have made this cute little chap!  He came on the cover of a magazine but I can't find it now so can't remember which one it was - whoops!  Let's hope I don't want to stitch him again.  I'm sure it must be in my craft cupboard somewhere, I must have too much stash in there!

I have layered him on gold mirror card and used 2 different fir tree patterned papers.  I added a sentiment from Hunkydory and some felt snowflakes with pearls.

It seems like I haven't made a card for ages.  I have had so much going on at my son's school I don't seem to have had much time to get everything out and it has been easier just to concentrate on the stitching.  It's the last day of Infant school today so all the assemblies and concerts are done.  It's been lovely watching everything he's been in.  Can't quite believe he'll be going to Juniors in September though, where does the time go?!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
