A Paper Pieced Christmas Flight for HMFMC178

Hello again crafty Friends. I'm so glad you are here.  I have a midway reminder for our Paper Piecing House-Mouse Challenge #HMFMC178
 photo hmbannerfall1.jpg
Here is my take on a sparkly Christmas scene:
I paper pieced the mouse by stamping it three ties and individually cutting out the hat and mouse in three parts then adhering with dimensional glue dots.  I've also used lots of these Festive Collection dies by Sue Wilson  to build up a poinsettia and greenery. I wanted something that Monica could land on.  Looking back, my kids say I should have her landing onto Candy.  LOL!  The card is finished off with lines of rhinestones that I cut from a roll of this decorative sparkly stuff (found in the floral section at Michael's).

CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: Stampendous! House-Mouse Designs, Cling Mounted Stamp called; "Whee Flight", #HMCQ02.
It features Monica holding on to her Santa hat as she gets daring this Holiday Season.
This original design is copyright Ellen Jareckie and House-Mouse Designs®.
Paper: Metallic textured Green CS, White Heavy CS, American Crafts DPs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Creative Expressions Festive Collection Classic and Mosaic Poinsettias, Craft Dies by Sue Wilson, Candy Cane EF, Sparkly Red Ribbon, Rhinestones
Techniques: Paper Piecing, Dry Embossing, Layering
