I fell in love with this image when I first saw it.  I just love the little mice in her scarf.  It is by Dawn Davidson Art on Etsy.  I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils.  The papers are from my stash.  This is going to be a Christmas card for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law.  They look forward to their card each year so I hope this meets their expectations.
