Happy Saturday Everyone!! The weekend is upon us and it is time for a new challenge at Saturday Spotlight!!

**One lucky winner from the Saturday Spotlight challenge in Mister Linky this week drawn from will recieve a $15.00 credit to this wonderful digital stamp store!! So be sure to take a look around!!**

Each of the design team members were given the opportunity to choose a digi from the store and use it for today's challenge creation.

I used the digi Little Helper. Isn't this mouse just darling?!

Since the challenge was Christmas flowers, I had to make a festive card. I colored the mouse with Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol. The present is cut out from the Basic Grey Wassail DP. The border of the card is red glitter paper for some added sparkle (sorry it does not show up in the picture, it may if you click and enlarge it.) I wanted to add some texture so I added fun fur yarn. I also incorporated these challenges:
