Lovin' the Bugaboo!!

Greetings bloggers, and happy Tuesday!  I'm back again today to share another Christmas card for the ole stash-eroonie:

 
Isn't this Candy Cane Mouse image from Bugaboo just the cutest?  I decided to use the current Verve sketch to showcase this little guy,
after I had seen some cute Christmas cards in the Jingle Belles gallery, and did an investigation!  :)
The dp comes from the Recollections Sugar Plum 12x12 paper pad.  When I was deciding what strip to put behind the circle element, I was going to use vellum at first, but didn't think it looked right.  I also didn't want to just use a plain strip of the dark red card stock, and I didn't want to emboss it either.  What to do, what to do?  I spied my Wink of Stella brush pen, and I slathered it all over each end of the strip.  There.  Perfect!  I love this card...I may just keep it out for awhile...LOL!
