Moving Along with the Times - Christmas Cuties

I'm on to my second card as part of the Design Team for the Moving Along with the Times challenges. This challenge has the theme of Christmas Cuties so, of course, I had to use House Mouse.

I've used a large square card blank by Joanna Sheen. I bought the red glitter sticky backed paper from Bluewater Craft Fair last year but I cannot remember which stall it was on, sorry! The House Mouse stamp sheet was bought from the Joanna Sheen website and after colouring with my Promarkers I cut it with a Spellbinders Resplendent rectangle die. Before removing it from the die I smudged with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and then coloured the edge with Barn Door Distress Ink. The poinsettia doily was given to me by a crafting friend, thanks Nataliya. The red 'star' in the bottom left was cut with a Spellbbinders die as was the sentiment. I added a red button, tied with baker's twine, to the centre of the 'star'. The sentiment came from the House Mouse stamp sheet.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps - Christmas is Coming
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge - Christmas is Round the Corner
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
