Christmas and Clovers

I made this double challenge card today for the WT226 Christmas in July, and the Three Clovers Sketch challenge #21.
This is officially my first Christmas card of 2009. I used the retired SU holiday dsp and ruby red cardstock. The image is by Stampabilities and I stamped it on water color paper and colored it with Tombows and a damp paintbrush. Oops! I see I forgot to color the mouse's nose! LOL I added Christmas red stickles to the berries on the branches. The leafy stem branch on the bottom of the card is a diecut from Sizzix. I added some liquid applique and dazzling diamonds to look like snow. The bow was made from rafia and those are white dew drops along the side. The corner is a QK diecut.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fun Thursday!

Very cute...I wanted to try the challenge today, but I only have one Christmas stamp and I didn't feel like using that one. I guess I need to get more Christmas stamps...
