Karen's Doodles Bigsby's Wreath

While blog hopping this morning, I ran into a really cool sketch at Crafty Companions and then I ran into a challenge to use a Christmas Mouse at Winter Wonderland, oh perfect!


I began by sizing Karen's Doodles Bigsby Wreath to fit my Inverted Scallops Circle die from Cheery Lynn Designs then printing it onto Cryogen paper.  Copics used:
Wreath - G21, G24, Y13
Bow - R32, R35 
Ornaments - R32, R35, R46, R59
Bigsby - E41, R20
Hat - R29
Blanket - BG01, BG02
I added Glossy Accents to the ornaments so they look like glass and Sparkly Fluff to Bigsby's hat.  This fabulous DP is from the October Afternoon Very Merry collection.  I made the poinsettia's using my Nellie Snellen punches, adding yellow Stickles to the center.  Finished size is 6" square.
