House Mouse and Friends Challenge

This is a set of cards I made for the House Mouse and Friends Blog DT challenge.  We were to take the same image and use it twice.  The first time we were to create a simple card with the image being the focal point. 
The second card we were to really go OVER THE TOP.. use designer paper, layers, glitter and lots of extras.  This is what I came up with.   These candy canes took me forever to color.  It is amazing what a difference the extras make.  I colored the top card with prisma pencils.  This card was colored with copics and I used my prisma pencils to highlight..





Lots of coloring but I love any House Mouse image.. They are so fun to create with.. I now have 2  more Christmas cards completed.  Thanks so much to the HM team for giving me this opportunity.. Good luck to all of the participants..
