Stocking Mice

Hello, friends.  I've made another Christmas card.  These sweet little stocking mice are from Penny Black "The Wonder" clear stamps, and I coloured them with my Prismacolor pencils.  I also added Stickles on the green stocking.  The leaves are from Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents (stamps and dies), stamped in Ancient Page Pine. 

The sentiment is from Plaid and I stamped it with Stampin' Up Going Grey.  The embossing folder is from Couture Creations, the white ribbon is from May Arts, and the glittery ribbon is from Dollarama.  I followed the sketch at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday:
