Today's card I would like to enter it into the below challenges challenge over at 

Outlawz Challenge - Wednesday sketch challenge

Colourful options November challenge  - RED 

The back ground with baubles, were some old stamp sheets my son did when he was little trying to make a picture with some of my stamps, and I couldn't bear to throw them away, so thought I would use them on this card. The digi image is one from Whoopsi Daisy from years ago. There are scraps of card from my stash, ribbon and brad. And die cut the greeting using a Lisa Horton, a freebie set I got recently from a papercraft magazine

Merry Christmas to you...

I have coloured this image with my Promarkers, and used some old backing papers from a freebie pack with a magazine a few years ago. Matted it onto red card, and added a res tree brad. The greeting was part of a wooden stamp from Dovecraft.

Christmas Mice

I have made a Christmas card using this lovely cute Mice stamp from Penny Black. It is a wooden stamp, called Xmas Troupe from 2009.

I have coloured it using promarkers, and used my square dies, to cut out the matting and layering. The back ground paper is from the collection called 'The Night before Christmas' from Trimcraft/Helz Cuppleditch. The greeting is from a stamp from Forever friends/Docrafts from 2008.  I used a touch of red glitter , and star sequins, gems to finish.
