Mistletoe and Mice

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are all having a lovely weekend. The sun is shining, I've finished work and I am now off until next Saturday, hurrah!!! My card today has been inspired by a few that I have seen on blogs that I follow and a challenge at ABC  Christmas Challenge which is too use paper piercing.  I have done decoupage before and the principle is similar, the hardest part was finding a suitable image and papers with a smallish pattern.

papers - dovecraft 'back to basics Christmas'
