My card features the new Mouse Spinner and matching die!! I have a tutorial on how i made this card over on the AI blog, so make sure you stop by for all the details!!

I decided to do a little paper peicing with the ornament and used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the mouse. To hang the spinner i used white floss and a double sided adhesive sheet to adhere the front and back of the spinner together (details in my tutorial on the AI blog!!).

I used some festive Christmas pattern paper to cover the front of my card base and some dark green on the inside of the card. The green really helps the spinner pop!!

For the sentiment, i stamped and embossed it on a red paper strip and added it to the bottom of my oval and card base before i added the pattern paper! Last i added a couple green embellishments next to the sentiment to help draw the eye down!
