That post- Christmas feeling...

This House Mouse stamp sums up that "Why did I have that second helping of..." Christmas feeling!  I'm sure I can't be the only one who feels a bit like this....  LOL!
I've coloured him with Copics and Glossy Accents for the chocolate icing.  I used my new Nestie Labels die to cut an aperture behind him.  The DP is Basic Grey Cupcake, the gems and ribbon are from stash and I used my new inverse corner punch, though I've just noticed it's not lined up perfectly on the layers - drat!

My card is for the following challenges:
Simon Says Challenge - time to party/celebrate - I reckon this little chap has done plenty of partying!
House Mouse Challenge - aperture
Crazy Challenge - punch it
Paper Sundaes - cut it out
My Time To Craft - brand, spanking new - new Nesties and new punch used
Anything Goes Challenge - letter C - is for cake!
Freshly Brewed Challenge  - celebrate
