Like, erm, MICE around a candle flame

I love this House Mouse image of the little mice sneaking into a lantern from the snow and warming themselves against the candle flame!

I'd got as far as stamping it and colouring it with Promarkers, and selecting some papers to go with it,  but I just couldn't decide how to put it all together. Then I looked at today's new challenge at CRAFT Challenges and saw that it is a sketch - and a perfect sketch for this image.

I've followed the sketch almost exactly (apart from the small diagonal trim on the bottom left which I'd thought was a watermark until I saw the DT samples!)
Other challenges I'm sharing this with are
House Mouse and Friends - Christmas 
Addicted to Stamps and More - Holiday 
Fab'n'Funky - Animals
