Music to my ears!!!!!

Hello everyone: I have a card to share made with my favorite little critters, the House Mouse siblings, this time is a Holiday card, hope you like it.  I'm linking this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

The image is stamped onto a panel of Strathmore Multimedia water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored with SU markers and an aqua painter. The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley and the pine branches and mistletoe from the brand new SU die set called Pretty Pines, just so beautiful.
The little jingle bells are from Memory Box, red twine from my stash.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The pretty image on the top is from the retired SU set called "Bordering Blooms", the sentiment is from Power Poppy Ponsettia stamp set and the little mug from Power Poppy Merry Littles.

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.
House Mouse challenge #229 "Christmas"
Christmas Sweet Stamping Challenge, "Anything Christmas Goes"
The Paper Shelter Challenge 272 "Christmas is Coming"
Unicorn Challenge Blog Challenge #15 "Snow/Snowflakes"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read all the comments you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
