Christmas Joy

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Christmas in July
And here is my card for your inspiration:
This is one of my favorite Di's images (hmm . . . I might say that about all of them!); that mouse is just so cute!!  I made a fun paper pieced background with paper scrap strips.  I love the bits of black, they really make this sweet image pop!  I finished the card off with a heat embossed sentiment.
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Stams: Di's Digi Stamps "Poinsettia Mouse" digi; Verve "Beyond Measure" sentiment
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangle; MFT "Blueprints 25" stitched rectangle (on the background panel)
