Mistletoe Mice

Image from Joanna Sheen House Mouse Triple CD Rom
Paper probably Nitwit I already had it printed off
Crafter's Companion Embossing Folder

A really simple card today, I tried placing more embellishments at the bottom right but didn't like the overall look (small picture ) so left the card quite plain. Which is your preference?

Plan to spend at least part of the day wrapping up the final presents bought last week and writing my cards .It's a beautiful frosty but sunny day with a little snow lying, such a pleasant change from the rain.

This is absolutely adorable! Love the shape of the card, the coloring, and the snowflakes in the background are such a nice touch. Thanks so much for joining us at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Good luck!

A lovely card - I prefer the final version without the additional embellishments as it seems to make the image stand out more.

I love the simpler version, the image is so gorgeous that it needs very little embellishing I think. Love this card Meg.

Awww these wee mice are adorable Meg… so cute with the little un and his mistletoe! Love the gingham frame and the pretty snowflake/bow/charm!
I prefer the card without the flowers personally… with them, it seems to knock off the overall balance. I think it's stunning just as it is! :-)
I've been wrapping my presents as I buy them this year, so much easier! just buying a couple more little things and then think I'm sorted and can relax! at least it's dry here today... gosh we've had a SO much rain past few days... think I need to build an ark!! :-))
Hope you have a nice evening!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

Hello Meg, both cards are beautiful, I do love the image, but if I had to make a choice it would be the first one, but i suppose it depends who you would be giving it to, take care, Kate x

Cute as can be. I really like the detail of the gingham patterned paper, and I love circled shaped cards. How come we don't make them more often?
I've caught up on all the lovely cards you've made lately. So much eye candy!
