Happy November!! Can you believe the Holidays are just around the corner??? YAY!!! well, I'm totally looking forward to all the festivities, but for now I'm on a mission to get some cute little cards done!

Here is the card I made using this fabulous sketch:
Seriously, is this not the cuuuutest thing ever? I don't know what it is about these adorable mice but OH MY. This is the new Ballet Millie, but I decided to give her a little Holiday flair by combining her with this fun sentiment from the WTG Winter in The CIty stamp set. I also double-layered my Millie, and then added a third layer using just her skirt. I colored each layer using Copic Markers, and then sponged the background of my oval image panel using Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo - which, incidentally, should just be renamed after me since I will die clutching it in my old, cold, inky hands. what can I say, I love my ink.
Anyhoo, all of the patterned paper is from my K&Co Peppermint Twist collection, and I finished up my card by adding a little stitching to my panels, some half-pearls, stickles for Millie's bow and shoes, and finally, a fancy ol' red bow to match Millie's fabulous tutu!!
I am so in love with this stamp and I had a blast mixing these patterns, with the help of this fabulous sketch! I hope you all decide to give it a try and play along with us!
