Polka Doodles Challenge

This is my entry for last week's Polka Doodles challenge, which doesn't end until Sunday so I'm still in in time. I spent ages thinking about this card, just couldn't decide on the image/theme to use and then decided to combine it with another challenge and use a digi-image. Spent an age trawling through my images and couldn't find the right one, so then decided to buy one, spent another hour or so trawling all my favourite sites and finally chose a sweet Christmas mouse, bought it, downloaded it, went to print it out & my printer decided not to work - aaaargh!

So plan B was called for, went into my craft room, decided to go Stampin' Up! and made the card in about 15 minutes, sometimes I wonder why do I make it so hard for myself!!

Apart from the buttons then it's all SU! in one of my favourite colour combo's pink & brown:

Stamps - Garden Whimsy and Circle of Friendship
DSP - from Sweet Always
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip & Whisper White
Ribbon - Chocolate Chip
