Cards for Men Challenge - No. 24

I think I'll just manage to get this published on the right day, even though it's very late.  This is my DT card for the latest challenge over on Cards for Men where the theme is Christmas.

I'm currently very busy with stuff at home and needed a quick make for this challenge.  I already had the decoupage panel made up from a while back so with  a few layers and backgrounds, a card quickly appeared.  There's a lot to be said about making toppers in advance when you have the time and patience.

The image, background and sentiment are all Joanna Sheen's House Mouse and I have some available for sale on my other blog.  The decoupage sheets are detailed and take a while to cut out, but I actually found it quite relaxing, once I'd got the hang of my craft knife.  It very quickly becomes like a pen.   The other thing I found with these products, which are quite new to me, was the quality of the backing papers.  They are a good heavy weight and they ooze quality.

Aw this is so adorable Donna! I love the little mice curled up in the lights - although I'm not sure I'd want to find them in real life when we get the decorations out in a couple of weeks! x
