Last Bah!Humbug! challenge - Cute Critters

We are finally at the end of the Bah!Humbug! challenges, and I'm going through withdrawal already! I have enjoyed this past year's weekly posts from the ladies at Humbug Hall (really look forward to Friday mornings to see what the ladies have been up to, and to see all the beautiful designs). I did manage to post an entry for each challenge, though some of the cards weren't the best. I have learned much from all of my fellow Humbuggers and can't wait to see what's in store for next year! If I don't get to post again before Christmas, I hope you and your families have the best of holidays.
Now, on to the last card:
For this challenge, we are asked to use a cute critter. I have used a house mouse stamp (it was actually a fall stamp that I altered a bit to make it more Christmassy) colored with copics. I mounted it on some patterned paper (cut out holly leaves and berries from the same paper to cover the fall leaves on the stamped image) and added snowflake brads. Some rhinestones were added to the corners of the red card base and a sentiment tied with bakers twine finished off the card. I hope you like the card and, as always, thank you for stopping by to take a look. I really appreciate all your comments and helpful suggestions!
