Paper Piecing Christmas Mousy.....

Hello everyone: As many of you know, I love making Christmas cards during the year, I participate in this challenges because, by the time the Holidays are here, I have a good stash of cards ready to mail to family and friends.
This time I'm entering my card  on the following challenges: Christmas Cards All Year Round "Anything Goes", the Fab Friday color challenge and the Just Add Ink "Just add.....Paper Piecing", here is my card.

This sweet little images are from a set from Close to my Heart called "Merry Little Christmas". This adorable set was gifted to me by my dear friend and card swap buddy Lisa Poe, so thank you so much Lisa, you were right, I'm loving this sweet little mice family.
The "Just Us Girls" challenge calls for paper piecing in your creation so, I stamped this images first on the water color panel, colored them with SU markers and then, fussy cut the little star on top of the Christmas Tree, the popcorn hanging from it, the little thimble where the tree is standing, the arm of Mrs. Mouse holding the popcorn and her fluffy bunny sleepers, those are adorable.
Here are some pictures of all of this little pieces.



Lots of fussy cutting but totally worth it.
Here is a picture of the inside of my card.


The sentiments both in front and inside are from the set, as well as the delicious cup of cocoa with marshmallows and the aromatic piece of cheese.
Here are the banners that inspired my card.
