House Mouse Christmas

This image makes me smile. I find it particularly funny because we have one of those "prelit" artificial trees, and currently about half the lights aren't working -- the tree looks like it's striped, with bands of working and non-working lights, kind of like a bunch of mice got in there and ate some wires.

The mice are black-embossed and colored in pencils. They are matted on a Spellbinders die, and I made a little embellishment out of a little designer paper and a ribbon. I was hoping to combat the unrelenting red and green-ness of this card, but I don't think I succeeded.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly, Christmas Creatures
52 Christmas Card Throwdown, revisit a 2013 challenge = Christmas animals
Holly Jolly Christmas, Anything Christmasy
Created With Love #70, Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday #110, Anything Goes
