For my card I used this super cute House Mouse Beaded Tree image ,, don’t you just love how he is decorating his pine cone ,,, awww :-)

I will link all the products used at the bottom of this post. The pine cone was a free weekly download from the Silhouette Store, I should have arranged the cone a bit better so they are not ‘in a row’,,, never mind,, I had fun making it. After I assembled I sprayed with glimmer, dabbed with snow cap and finished with glitter ,, looks so fab IRL :-)
