Nibbles the mouse says: From the heart, Merry Christmas!

This cute little mouse was fun to color. I used pastels this time. I would have rather used Copics, but don't quite have my collection full of all the colors I want yet. (I'm a long ways from complete, but did pick colors I love and little by little can add to it.)
The challenge this week was to use metallic colors, which was my choice. I scored the front of the card to open like a book and used 3-D tape under it. A different technique for me which was super easy. Below is the 'recipe' for the card. Be sure to check out the other awesome designers I have had the pleasure to design with for the last 6 months at  The challenge is to get others to use metallic colors in their card. Enter for a chance at a prize at Dolce Stamps & Cards. This is my last card required for the design team, but I hope to participate as a guest designer now and then, or perhaps as a contest participant :-)
