A Mousie Christ-mouse

Oh boy. I'm almost done with Christmas and, quite frankly, I'm relieved. I love the season but my head is spinning from trying to come up with new ideas. I'm looking forward to more general purpose cards for a while to get the old mojo working again and, besides, I have lots of new non-Christmas DPs I'm really itching to use!
I'm not sure if she's doing a tricky balancing act, or if she's shouting "Hey, look at me!!!". I just know she's a lovely little shining star and I'm proud to have her atop my Christmas tree.

I colored her star with silver PearlEx then sprinkled with silver glitter. The MS punch and Spellbinder snowflakes were cut from white glitter card stock, panel embossed with CB snowflake folder and trimmed with RRR ribbon. Thanks to CathyK for the sketch idea which I modified a bit, but it helped me put the card together.  The sentiment was computer-generated. Since this week's Wild Orchid Challenge. is Blue Christmas, I thought I'd pop over there and enter. So many beautiful cards!!
