Oh Baubles ... Christmas in Spring

This has to be one of the cutest Whiff of Joy stamps - Henry Mouse with Christmas Bauble. He was a little neglected last year but, as I intend to have all my Christmas cards done by October, I'm sure you will be seeing him again! The old sewing machine as also made another appearance. I think the stitching is a little straighter than my previous attempt!!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges: Winter Wonderland "Oh Baubles", For Fun "Christmas", Secret Crafter "Christmas in Spring" & CHNC "Square Card".
