Bah Humbug challenge......

Pleats and Ruffles is this weeks challenge from Bah Humbug.
Xmouse ornnamnet is the stamp I have used for this card....but the card is completely different from how I planned it!  Using a Go Kreate template to cut my card then a smaller die to cut the Stampin Up backing paper.
The little mouse is coloured with pencils and then mounted onto nesties. I then started to PLEAT my ribbon but it ended up being ruffled!  After cutting the ribbon to fit my card I had a little bit over which seemed a shame to throw away so I them just stitched the bottem and ended up using it for the middle of my Christmas flower which I put on a Marrianne leaf die from a ponsettia set leaf. Sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

Thanks for popping by  Anne

This is lovely and that die has made a lovely shaped card - can't wait!! I like the way you've ruffled your ribbon and that is a sweet little Xmouse.
