A Christmas Hamster

If you are here for my Monday Morning Challenge, simply click the tab above.

Happy Wednesday everyone and a  
Warm Welcome to all my new blog readers!!!

I have a new card to share with you today, using an older but super adorable stamp from Whimsy Stamps.

He's been stamped onto 110lb card stock (I ran out of copic blending card but luckily it's already ordered), and colored with copic markers.
The sentiment I used is from the November release. I kept the sketch simple, embellished with a little bit of designer paper and an ornament border die cut.
Products used:
Christmas HamsterWinter Brackets, both by Whimsy Stamps
Ornaments Border die by Whimsy Stamps
Authentique designer paper, SU and recollections CS
glitter and red cord
