Christmas Mice

I created this Christmas card for the spy day challenge at TGF's Farm Fresh Challenges.  The inspiration I used from the spy day card was the sketch and twine.  The base of my card is kraft card stock.  I cut a piece of citrus teal card stock a little smaller than the card and backed it in red card stock.  I added red bakers twine across the middle of the card.  The snowflakes that I added are thin plastic snowflake ornaments that I found at the dollar store.  I colored the image, Candy Cane Snack,  using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I backed it in red and then again in kraft.  I stamped the sentiment onto kraft card stock and backed it in red.  I made a bow out of the red bakers twine and added it to the twine across the middle. I added a red heart rhinestone to the sentiment and 3 red rhinestones to the bottom corner of the card.
